Apple Walk

We spent this morning tying in shoots on the apples in the apple walk, as well as putting up the last of the horizontal wires (80% of the penultimate wire tier was there, but this meant adding the last wire, which is the last tier before the apex/ridge bar). We also weeded around the apple trees, which probably took as much time to do. They now look an awful lot neater, and the walk looks really good. They could do with a last prune in the next couple of weeks, before the leaves fall, and then I'll do a mid-winter trim (to encourage buds to break at critical points) some time in February, probably.
