See 'Drinks this Summer' thread for report on Sarah's childrens' tree-climbing potential (though this may be redundant if Tharg's efforts bear fruit (literally literally).

Not on topic, but Tharg - I just clicked on your profile by accident - thank you for making me laugh out loud for the first time today !!!

Very cute. Especially the locks of golden hair.

Does your mum still knit you cardies? Mine tries to.

I didn't know your mum tries to knit cardies for me.

By the way, there's a pub in the Forest of Dean claiming a British record for the 35 ciders it stocks, five of them are draught.

Good news, Dave Kaspar, Chair of the Gloucestershire Orchard Group has been in touch. He can provide us with half a ton of cider apples, blended to our requirements, picked and bagged ready to go for "not more than 100."

Great stuff Tharg!! I'd been thinking about this, and had come to the (not mindblowing) conclusion that mixed apples would be best, but that it would be difficult to get the mix with such a small quantity.

Well done. Well done. Well done.

I got a reply from Roots and Shoots today (apparently, email had been down and so they couldn't reply to me. Odd that they never got the answerphone messages either ;0)), but it was just a holding reply. When I hear properly, I will post.

I've also left a few more messages for the New Forest cider man, to see about that press, but no joy so far. Won't give up, and will keep everyone updated with progress.

Lots of nice cider round at ours at the moment. V happy to syphon a few pints your way if you're going to be passing by Ivanhoe Mansions in the nr future. You've got the number, so just give us a call if you fancy it.

...if you press it, they will come.

This new system has changed my name! Hmm.......I'm not sure about this.
Dave Kaspar was extremely helpful when I spoke to him last night, he said to find out what style of cider we were after, and he would then provide the blend for us. I'll go and visit him next time I'm home (the week after next) and get some more info off him. He was really impressed when I told him of our aims, and is able to offer a lot of advice.
Ex - Tharg, drinker of pervy

(changed my name too, but luckily I'd already forgotten my name so many times that I did have another ID that was suitably close to my old one, and I was able to get the system to send me the forgotten password for that. Technology!!! HUMBUG!!)

Good on ya Tharg. That sounds perfect. I like the bit about having to decide what style of cider we want - sounds like an excuse for lots of tasting.

Look forward to further postings from both you and Ivanhoe.
(Ivanhoe's cider stocks come highly recommended - at least the one that I tried. Provided a welcome thirst-quencher for two overheated sailors during becalmed moments during our sail on Monday)
