My new garden has a few fruit trees, and while we missed most of it, the pears are ready. The pear tree is higher than the house I think and has dramatically dropped every pear in the last few days. They’re not good for eating fresh, but are tasty in crumbles and pies.
This is where I plan to start the vegetable garden next year. As you can probably tell the previous owners didn’t like gardening much (though apparently they did enjoy sitting in it!) Just behind where this photo was taken is a patch which I intend to cover in fruit bushes, and which the chickens are currently fertilizing for me.
Technically not my garden as this is the view from the back fence, and the one we get from our bedroom window. Sheep and cows share this field and come quite close to our garden. I am looking forward to the day I get say hello up close.
Our garden has some delightful wee buildings – a greenhouse and a half, a big shed, woodshed, bird boxes as well as lots of compost bins. If you have any idea what this could be please let me know – my dad has this plant too and we did cut open a fruit once but it didn’t seem either tasty or edible. This is definitely three fruits stuck together, the rest on the bush are all on their own.
