|I've added something to my wish list. |
The large house where I'm currently working has a lean-to greenhouse on a south facing wall of one of the barns.
This green house contains just a single peach tree, full of peaches. It's had no care from anyone this year (although plenty in the past) but it's seems to have a really good crop, just perfect for a treat at the end of lunch time!
|To tempting to leave!|
It's a great place for a green house as the south facing stone wall must hold and store so much heat, making the peaches ripen perfectly. The roots on the tree must be plenty big enough to get it's water from outside the greenhouse (and the holes in the roof).
|Good sized peach tree|
All I need now is a south facing wall and a peach tree that's got a bit of age to it! Something to plan to build and plant in a few years time! Anyone else love to grow food that shouldn't really ripen in their country (I've still yet to conquer figs!)
