Looks like they are the sort you train to grow in a lateral direction. All those apples, will you make any scrumpy Jenny?

Scrumpy? You know about that, Frank ? I got totally plastered on scrumpy once when I was in my early twenties.

Yes Dai I had the pleasure of drinking scrumpy many years ago when on holidays in Somerset.
I thought there was nothing to this "Apple Juice" until several pints later I started talking gibberish, my face felt numb and my legs just wouldn't work properly when I stood up. I had a great holiday!

No I don't think they are that variety Frank - it's because I didn't have the branches trimmed and therefore they're nice and long and the fruit is very heavy making it sag. I can't remember the variety of apple I was eating when I threw the core into the garden - I think it would be a russet or something like that - as for scrumpy - I don't think so - but certainly loads of apple recipes

I remember eating proper scrumpy when I was a Redcoat at Minehead in the late 60's and someone went to the local farm and bought a barrel of some. I was totally helpless after a couple of glasses - can't remember getting back to the chalet room - but I do remember not feeling terribly well for a few days LOL

haha really Frank ? I think I've only had it once and it hit me for six. I wonder if I can find it here in Portugal.

Yes I was a Redcoat at Minehead in 1967 - I absolutely loved it - working from 7am to midnight, 6 days a week for the grand sum of £4.10s a week!!! Mind you they did throw in free board and lodgings, even though I had to share the chalet with someone else.

£4 and ten shillings went much further in those days but we had to save hard to buy the things we wanted. I started my first job when I was 15, for £5 a week before income tax and NHS deductions. There wasn't much left but I gave half of my net pay to my Grandmother. She never asked but I wanted to give. The remainder of my money I carefully saved for buying things like my white shirts, underwear and socks from Marks & Spencer. People are so much better off these days.
