We grow our own food in a suburban village in the North East of England. Follow us as we keep up the battle to be self-sufficient.

We planted an apple tree on our allotment back in 2012. It is at the edge of the herb garden, next to two of our hives. It is now in blossom (though today the rain is tipping down so the bees won't be visiting.) We didn't get any fruit on this tree last year but if it produces a crop this year and it is anything like the fruit crop generally in 2013, it will give us plenty of apples.
