It has been an odd year for the garden to say the least. Earthquakes rattling it around and snow seems to have confused it. Some fruit trees have blossom, others starting to bud out after the first snow, asparagus started to come up (and then promptly left), and we have spent a lot of time removing silt and replacing it with soil.

We are hoping for excellent fruit this year and have started planning a spray programme for the first time since we've been here.

As our next (and final) round of renovations are due to start soon the garden will hopefully not be neglected.
