Also the time for the next push towards the arrival of our first resettled refugee family in Launceston.
But we still need more funds (an a suitable house to rent) so RogerCO had an idea…
Four years ago he planted a batch of Cornish apple trees as maidens to form the basis of an orchard – and this year they have started to produce some fruit.
Not a massive amount yet – but 20 trees with between 1 and 30 apples set on each at the beginning of August. Of course the birds and wasps will take their share but he may have enough left to provide a basket of local apples to greet our first family.
This is where you come in – how about sponsoring the apple picking?
Five pounds to start with an then a penny (or more) for each apple that makes it from orchard to table.
Get over to his MyDonate page now and give a fiver – and then you can come along to the October LRSG Meeting (7:30pm in the Bell Inn in Launceston on Thursday 25th October) to taste and compare whatever varieties have made it that far …
Sidney Strake, Werrington Wonder, Lady Henniker, Pigs Snout, Cottage Colloggett, Snell’s Glass, Sops-in-Wine, Saw Pit, Callington Gilliflower, Mylor Pike and Bloddy Butcher (aka Cornish Breadfruit) are some of the names to conjure with.
Give us a fiver now and come to the tasting in October
