But then I bought a pear tree for £12. A pot-grown Conference pear tree from a boot-sale is a bit of a risk but at half the price of something similar from a tree suppliers catalogue it's worth a try. In the past we had success even with the cheap supermarket trees. This one was a good size and probably a reject from a nursery as it was a bit wonky in the pot.
I got it planted the same day, straightening it up as I planted. It could really do with staking before windy weather. Another bit of my plan to fit in as many productive things as possible into my small garden.
At the WI......where I've now joined properly, most people had a Fish and Chips meal (a celebration of being back to normal meetings) but I opted out as I don't like eating a big meal as late as 7.45pm. Then we had a man from the village talking about how he's now self published 4 children's books and one of the committee members talking (going on and on actually!) about the large sack of daffodil bulbs which she has bought for members to plant around the village.(Just hope she never becomes President as no one else would get a word in !)
Thursday was library van day - book photo coming Monday. Friday was blinkin' chilly, very different to Tuesday.
