Munching and meddling at Wapley – first crop and work morning 15 September

Ten of us met at Wapley today for the first autumn work morning of the year. We started as usual with a safety briefing:

Then most of our volunteers worked on clearing the stream in the wood and cutting vegetation back from the paths, while a couple of us did some maintenance on the young fruit trees.

  • Good news – we’ve had our first crop from the Orchard for the Future.
  • Bad news – we’ve eaten it. Two apples, one each. But they tasted lovely!

Here’s another part of our mini-crop – a medlar, very much a rarity nowadays.

 And here are our volunteers at the end of a productive morning.

Our next work morning at Wapley will be on Saturday 16 November, but there will be a Wapley Owl Prowl on Monday 28 October, meeting at 7.00 pm at the Shire Way gate. See you there?.
