Most years I get a generous amount of wild raspberries from both our garden and out towards Inveronnich. This year someone has beaten me to the punch – the grass is trampled down and all the best rasps have gone. After spending half an hour and only ending up with a handful I gave up. Still, it is good that someone has taken them – I just hate seeing them going to waste.
On the fruit front, it does look however as though there will be a big crop of both plums and apples this year. We have three cyprus trees which have more or less died off down at the bottom of the drive, so come September, I am going to dig them out and plant three fruit trees. Not cherries though (much as I like them) as we did not see one cherry off our existing tree this year due to our gang of rapatious jays.
