This year is the first year Quince Minor has joined in the count and that alone is enough for meq to celebrate wildly.

Three quince

Yes that's right - three quinces on Quince Minor. These quinces are tricksy things and hide very well at times. I am very pleased to fine this one growing so well. This is not the weak looking quincelet I was looking at in July, that did drop off, this one has been keeping itself in the shade. Probably wise in this current heatwave.

I could only find one quince on Quince Major today, so I suspect that one may have succumbed to gravity. As said above, each quince is prized and if I end up with a total of four quinces in the Autumn I shall be beyond happy.

As ever time will tell....
