New Fruit Trees Arrive:  This month we got delivery of our new fruit trees.  These comprise mostly pear trees, which we will plant in the 'wild plot', where we kept our few pigs last year.  The pigs did a nice job of clearing the undergrowth, and now we need to plough and cultivate the plot as soon as the soil is dry enough to till.  We also have a selection of cherry trees which will be destined for planting in our planned new polytunnel when it is ready.  We need to carefully mind the new trees now until planting time, being careful not to let them dry out.
