The Schard looks a bit like a carrot albeit a big carrot - being 310m tall.  Now I wondered how heavy a 310m carrot would weigh and my calculations come to just over 1 million tonnes, which is about 50% more than the total uk carrot production.  Now we can ask which is more expensive, carrots or the schard?  Well the schard cost £435 million and a million tonnes of carrots has a market price of £500 million.  So carrots are more expensive than the Schard.

Sorry for so many questions

1) I have a family tree (M26) (Jupiter, Jester and Fiesta) also a Balerina (Bolero - wonderful taste)  and 2 M27 Ashmead's Kernel and Pixie.
Are these are spur or tip bearers?  Would most people prune these?  If so when summer and winter?  I don't want them to grow bigger (apart from one of the M27's).
2) Is it possible to store apples inside this year I left 2 bags in the shed and a rat got them!!!
3) Any tips for picking apples from the highest branches - the tree is not strong enough to lean a ladder against it
4) Has anyone tried the super columnar from Chris Bowers?  Are they any good?  Do they really need that much space as they say?

5) A bit broke of the M27 and I put it a pot to see if it will root any thoughts on this idea?

For the last four years I have grown Caveolo Nero (Tuscan Kale). I've never had any problems in the past cooking it. I've just cooked it like savoy cabbage. However this year's crop are still pretty tough even after an hours boiling. Could it be due to the mad weather we had last year??
Anyone experienced this before?
