We went to see the Tour of Britain riders pass by, and have a short ride with our friend from Fife.
The railway was forced to cross the river as one local moneyed gent didn't want the rails on his land....now we have a nice bridge partly funded by European Union grants.....
A quarter are Scottish varieties....a quarter English...a quarter cider varieties...and a quarter stock for growing grafting stock. Mostly apples and a few pears.
It hasn't been a good year with cold and wet conditions at blossom time, but the variety Coul Blush was looking really promising.
Long may he succeed in his work here. I hope he may have an Apple Day some time in the future, but that will only happen with a lot of help.
