With fruit a plenty on the trees in the orchard, their weight has resulted in a few cracked branches. The early plum lost a large branch a month ago, now it is the turn of the greengage tree and one of the apple trees.
Graham and Ali made the trees safe by cutting the branches off and removing the wood to the chipping pile, lets hope we don't lose any more before we get to pick all the fruit.
