May 2015.

I had to cut back the arms on the rotary clothes hoist so it would clear the relocatable climbing frame.  Lil lost a line, but I replaced the old ones and she's happy. 

The Ecobeds have now been fully planted out with winter vegetables (details), and my mini Ecobed is full of seedlings.  They will be used to fill space made available as I continue to harvest carrots, leeks and lettuce over the next few weeks.

My Granny Smith apples are a good size again this year, and have been virtually unaffected by pests like codling moth and powdery mildew.  Here's how to grow organic dwarf espaliered apples like the ones in the photo.
