I have been busy today making a homemade apple cake
I also have made a chicken casserole for tonight's Tea ( Dinner to non black country folk) We call lunch Dinner lol.
Made with chicken thighs, carrots, tomato puree, herbs, onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes, stock cubes and a few frozen sprouts dropped in towards the end to soak up the juice, Browning the chicken and onions and garlic before covering with stock and slow cooking all afternoon.
I have lots of apples both cooking and eating, I am just looking into how to store them through the winter as last year I did not have any fruit and froze the free ones my neighbour gave me and they went spongy
My problem is with the trees, I am hoping some gardeners out there will be able to help me, I was told I could cut the trees down to transport them when we moved house four years ago which I did reluctantly and they are growing but very very slowly and are top heavy have I ruined them completely will they ever grow tall, I would appreciate your advice they were only 3 years old when I cut them back.
Hello, Carole, it was nice to meet you last Friday.
