Had a trip out this afternoon to an orchard and did PYO apples -just a few. Pretty silly as everywhere is groaning with them, but I spent last weekend in bed ill and fancied some countryside. Would be a bit mean to have a good old walk round and then pass the kiosk man without anything to weigh.
'No apples to Madam's liking?'
'Too red. Too shiny.'
The apples are Norfolk Royal and are bright red and very shiny. Rather like the apple in the Disney Snow White. Not sold in shops because they don't keep we'll enough. The next field had lavender in it, so will return in the summer for a sniff.
