The pear tree that grows in the church

grounds by my study keeps me in tune

with the seasons. Barren in winter, it

slowly re-grows its leaves throughout

March and April before bursting into white

blossom for a week or so in May. Then from May

to September it slowly grows the buds that will

eventually become pears. In September and

October we frequently end up with more pears

than we know what to do with (though a friend

made some very nice perry out of them last year).

The abundance of fruit that autumn brings is

quite marvellous - as you will know if you’ve ever

walked through an orchard just before the apple

harvest.

Yet, despite nature’s seeming generosity in

her provision, most fruit-bearing plants and trees

need to be carefully tended if their fruit is to be

enjoyed. In my previous house we had a wild vine growing up one of

the walls. The grapes looked very attractive, but they tasted horrible.

Our pears are useful for stewing but not particularly nice to eat off the

tree. Growing good fruit is a perfect combination of nature’s wizardry

and human endeavour.

Perhaps this is why fruit becomes such a helpful metaphor for our

own growth and development. We bear fruit in our own lives from

a mixture of our own inherent personal traits as well as our own will

to change. Jesus recognised that the fruit that we bear in our lives

comes from something much deeper within - a good tree bears good

fruit, a bad tree, bad fruit. You are known and judged by the fruit that

you bear.

If this sounds a little too much like folk-wisdom for our sophisticated

tastes, then it’s worth spending a little time thinking about our lives

and how we project ourselves to others. Are we like my pear tree

seemingly full of fruit, but actually of very little substance, or like my

wild vine - attractive on the outside but sour on the inside?

Or are we instead like a well cultivated orchard bearing

good fruit from good lives?

The Bible recognises that none of us is perfect, and

that the fruit that we bear is rarely as perfect as we

would like to think. Nevertheless through following

Jesus our lives can be changed and become more

fruitful. What fruit are you bearing right now?

her Sunday

School group to

was puzzled by

Patsy’s picture

which showed

four people on an

asked her which

to represent.

“Mary and

Joseph’s flight to

Egypt,” said Patsy.

“I see ... and

that must be

Mary, Joseph

and Jesus,” the

teacher said. “But

who’s the fourth

person?”

“Oh, that’s Pontius

– the Pilot.”

“Do you think it would be possible for you to turn

the wine back into water?”

An old lady was sending

her ancient family Bible

to her brother who lived

abroad.

“Is there anything

asked the man in the post

Woodseats Community

The idea of turning an area

of council-owned land into

a community orchard was

conceived by Woodseats

residents Richard and Sue

Lee, recently retired and with time and

energy to spare.

Their idea was to transform the

driveway from Camping Lane to the

Woodseats allotment site from an overgrown

and weed-choked eyesore into a

productive orchard which will ultimately

provide fruit for local residents and

allotment tenants.

Josie Wright, president of Woodseat

Allotment Society was supportive from

the outset and immediately promised to

donate some fruit trees. The Allotment

Officer from the council was also very

supportive and promised help in the

form of Bob, the allotment Ranger, to

help with the clearing of the site.

A working-day was

scheduled for October

2013. In a matter

of hours Bob

and his team

of enthusiastic

volunteers

grubbed out all

the brambles,

bushes and

weeds and

dumped the

lot on Sue’s

recently winterdug

allotment ready

for burning. Over

winter Richard worked

steadily from one end

of the newly cleared site to

the other turning over the soil and

removing the remaining tree-roots.

National

Allotments Week

takes place from August 10 to

16 this year. Woodseats Allotment

Society is supporting the National

Society of Allotments and Leisure Gardens

by opening its site to the public on Saturday

August 15.

If you have ever wondered what is behind

those big metal gates off Camping Lane, now is

your chance to find out! Visitors will be able to

walk around the site. Several plots will be open

to visitors and tenants at hand to answer

questions and to show people round.

The society hut will be open for

refreshments and garden supplies.

Cakes, preserves, produce

and plants on sale.

Orchard

By February 2014 the ground was

ready and 19 trees were planted.

Against the wall there are pears and

cherries, and between the wall and

the driveway there are eating apples,

cooking apples and plums.

The pears and cherries are being

trained to grow flat against the wall

(plums horizontal and cherries in a

fan-shape). The remaining trees will be

pruned in such a way as to keep them

from growing too high.

Anderson Tree Care provided the

mulch (shredded wood) to keep the

weeds down and the trees were left to

grow.

In late autumn 2014 Sue planted 350

mixed daffodil bulbs between the trees

and a mixture of bulbs at the Camping

Lane end of the site. These looked

great when they flowered this spring.

Hopefully they will spread over the

years and eventually provide an annual

daffodil spectacular.

The project has already provided a

great deal of satisfaction. Allotment

tenants and local residents have all said

how much better the entrance to the

Allotment Site looks. But the best is yet

to come. The trees have all blossomed

well this spring and we hope they may

yield a small harvest this year! The

trees, and the fruit they bear, are for

the community to enjoy. It is our wish

that over time, a great many people

will benefit from Woodseats Allotment

Society’s decision in 2013 to turn their

site entrance into a community orchard.

Allotments please visit our website at

Banking on the Future

Have you ever visited

the garden centre and

been spoilt for choice,

spending endless time

trying to decide on which

variety of what to buy?

But what about the number

and varieties of plants and fruits

that were around when you were

growing up but we no longer see?

This could just be that the kind

of apple we ate at home 20, 40

or 80 years ago is not stocked by

our multi-national superstores - or

it could be that it no longer exists.

Today, 60,000 to 100,000

species of plant are faced

with the threat of extinction.

The Millennium Seed Bank

Partnership - coordinated by the

Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew -

is the largest plant conservation

programme in the world. It looks

at wild plants faced with the threat

of extinction and those of most

use for the future.

The seeds saved are conserved

in seed banks in case they

become extinct in their native

habitat.

Working with a network of

partners in 80 countries across

the world, over 13 per cent of the

planet’s wild plant species have

been banked and the partnership

is aiming to save a

quarter of species with

‘bankable’ seeds by

2020 - a total of 75,000

species. The team

initially aimed to store

seeds from all of the

UK’s native plant species

and it has now achieved

this, apart from a handful

of species that are either

very rare or whose

seeds are particularly

difficult to store.

The Seed Bank Partnership

targets plants and regions most

at risk from the impact of human

activities, including land use and

climate change.

Seeds are collected by Kew’s

partner organisations around the

world and preserved by careful

drying before being stored in large

underground frozen vaults in

temperatures of -20 deg c.

Where possible, collections

of seeds are duplicated in seed

banks in the country where they

were collected.

The idea is that they are given

a ‘best before’ or expiry date –

some in a few decades, others for

over 1,000 years – and are then

planted and geminated before this

date arrives.

The new seeds are then taken

from the plant and re-stored. If

the species becomes or nears

extinction, the seeds are used to

repopulate the wild.

A spokesman for the partnership

said: “Each day the world’s plants

are more and more at risk. If we

continue on our current path, we

will lose one species a day for the

next 50 years.

“We can’t afford to let these

plants, and the potential they

hold, die out.”

all about trying to

be a good person.”

Over the years many

different people have

“It’s

said this or something

similar to me when we’ve been

talking about what it means to

be a Christian. But this idea is

radically different to the Bible’s

idea of what it means to be a

Christian, and why a

Christian might seek

to be “good”.

In St Paul’s letter

to the Galatians,

Paul talks about the

“fruit of the Spirit”.

He says, “The fruit of

the Spirit is love, joy,

peace, forbearance,

kindness, goodness,

faithfulness, gentleness and

self-control.” Paul describes

these virtues not as things that

are to be achieved in order to

be considered a Christian, but

rather as “fruit of the Spirit”. It is a

fascinating metaphor. Christians

believe that the Holy Spirit is

God dwelling in all Christians,

shaping and changing them to

be more like Jesus. Displaying

the virtues that St Paul lists is not

a prerequisite to believing, but

should be a result of believing in

Jesus, just as fruit trees naturally

produce fruit.

This is not to claim that people

who aren’t Christians don’t

sometimes display these virtues;

clearly many people who wouldn’t

call themselves Christians can

demonstrate these virtues, often

more than some of us Christians

do!

But for a Christian, these virtues

should flow out of a transformed

life. In our back garden, we have

a couple of small apple trees.

They haven’t been in long, and

do not yet bear much fruit. But we

trust that as the years go on, they

will continue to grow and will give

an ever increasing crop of apples.

As apple trees naturally produce

apples, so the Christian should

naturally produce the fruit of the

Spirit.

For a Christian, a fruitful life

is measured not

by success, or

respect, or wealth.

It is measured by

how much we are

being transformed

to be more like

Jesus, the one who

demonstrated all

of these virtues in

the ultimate and

complete way.

To be a Christian is not to be

good enough for God, it is to

be forgiven by God and to be

changed by him to display the fruit

of the Spirit.

Spirit is love, joy,

Changing

Follow us on Twitter @stchadsimpact

Remember those wonder days

when the first strawberries of

the year appeared in the shops,

heralding the start of summer?

Times have changed -

now strawberries from all over

the world are on sale all

year round!

I began working in

the old Castlefolds

Market, next to the

“Rag and Tag” Market,

way back in 1959.

Within a year it had

moved to new premises

by the Parkway. The

short strawberry season,

beginning about June 12

and lasting only three to four

weeks, was an exceptionally

busy time for us. We were up at 3am

to unload the lorries. Our strawberries

came in 1lb punnet, or ‘chips’, made of

woven strips of thin wood, which were

packed in wooden boxes – a far cry from

today’s universal cardboard and plastic

packaging! The boxes were returnable

to the growers in Lincolnshire and

Cambridgeshire.

Market traders and local shopkeepers,

from about a 50-mile radius, came to buy

from the 100 or so stalls like ours. The

market opened at 6.30am, by which time

a huge queue of vans and lorries had

built up. Herbert Salvin of Woodseats

was nearly always the first to arrive in

the queue - and he usually bought his

strawberries from us, too!

Our tomatoes started arriving in

early May from heated greenhouses in

Norfolk. They were individually wrapped

in coloured tissue paper according to

size and quality, and were packed in

World at the Market

quarter bushel wooden boxes. For

the benefit of our younger readers, a

bushel of tomatoes weighed 56lbs or

a little over 25kgs - so you can work

out what a quarter weighed. We

even sold misshapen ones,

though I doubt that these

would be acceptable in

supermarkets today.

Since I left the market,

I have become an

allotment holder and I

can see “the other side

of the coin”. I grow

my own tomatoes now,

peaking two years ago

with 26 varieties. Not

content with just growing

traditional tomatoes which are

always red, I’ve experimented very

successfully with other colours, growing

yellow, green, orange, black, brown and

even stripey ones!

Apples were our principal fruit.

Worcester Permains were the first

of the early English

apples to arrive -

beautiful apples

which were best

eaten within

two to three

weeks of being

picked. Like the

tomatoes, apples

came wrapped

in tissue paper

and packed

into returnable

wooden boxes. Next came Lord

Lambournes which were also delicious

eaten fresh. The two most popular

late varieties were Laxton Superbs and

Coxes - some were sold straight away

in the shops, but most were kept in cold

storage so that they could be brought

out in the winter months. Cooking

apples like Bramleys, Lord Derbys and

Grenadiers were the same. It’s sad

that so many varieties which were once

household names, have disappeared

from supermarket shelves today.

The growth of supermarkets meant

that small shops were disappearing, so

trade was diminishing. I used to think

that I could have a job for life, yet that

wasn’t to be - and not just for me, but

for others, too. The world was changing

fast. By 1989 the time had come for me

to retire from the market and seek other

employment.

Tomatoes may be a fruit,

but would you put them in

a fruit salad..?

It is a murky world out

there and things are not

always what they seem. Take

the strawberry for example. To

the simple amongst us anything

which has the word ‘berry’ in it,

such as strawberry, raspberry

and blackberry must be a berry

– right? – but no, things are not

that simple. Another example

would be the humble rhubarb

plant. Because we eat the plant

itself and not the seed-bearing

part – the fruit - then it must be a

vegetable – yes, and confusingly

no – it all depends on where you

live.

In the USA, in 1947, it was

decided that rhubarb was a fruit,

partly because of its acidic taste

but also because it is used in

a fruit like way in puddings etc.

However, by my definition it is

definitely a vegetable as we eat

the plant itself and not the part

which bears the seeds.

But what about the berry

conundrum? Officially a berry is a

fleshy fruit produced from a single

seed, having one fruit stemming

from one flower with one ovary

and often several seeds. By this

definition tomatoes are a berry as

are watermelons, cucumbers

and bananas – confused? –

join the club. The strawberry

is actually an ‘accessory fruit’

because it grows from a part of

the plant other than the flower

– watch one as it develops

and you will see what I mean.

If you examine a strawberry

you will find that the seeds

are on the outside and in fact

each seed is a fruit – so it is a

fruit of fruits. It might look like one

fruit but is actually many fruits

from one flower. To add to the

mix raspberries and blackberries

are ‘aggregate fruit’ because

they are lots of fruits aggregated

into one ‘fruit’ – I told you it was

confusing. Other languages don’t

get themselves into this sort of fix

because they don’t lump so many

types of fruit under one general

name.

Guess whose fault this all is?

You guessed it, ours – well, our

ancestors anyway. The word berry

is derived from the Old English

word for grape. As time went on

anything which hung in bunches

like grapes had the general term

‘berry’ attached to it, and then it all

went downhill from there.

Whatever they are called they

all taste amazing, and I like

nothing better than going down

to the allotment early in the

morning to pick the strawberries,

raspberries, blackberries,

blackcurrent and redcurrant and

then hotfooting it home to have

them on my cereal not fifteen

minutes later. Often there is more

fruit than cereal. Strangely I have

never been tempted to have

rhubarb on my cereal – maybe

because it’s a vegetable. I shall

have to give it a go.

The Pleasure of Chutney

Contentment is … opening

the door on the cellar

head, in the autumn,

and seeing chutney,

jams and pickles staring

back at me from the shelves.

The jars represent months of

work – sowing, planting, weeding,

picking and preparing the fruit

and vegetables before they are

jammed, pickled and chutneyed.

This is a labour of love and

great to have enough to share

with friends and family throughout

the months when fresh fruit and

veg are in short supply in the

allotment. A taste of summer fruit

on freshly baked bread or tangy

pickle with cheese is a real treat

in the winter months. All the jars

on the cellar head will last for

at least a year and only natural

ingredients!

Beetroot ChutneyRecipe

Ingredients:

2lb raw shredded or grated

beetroot

1lb onions skinned and chopped

1 and a half lbs apples, peeled

and chopped

1lb seedless raisins

2 pints malt vinegar

2lb sugar

half an ounce of ground ginger

Method:

Place all ingredients in a pan,

bring to the boil and simmer until

soft and pulpy (about an hour)

Put into warm, sterilised jars and

seal. Keep for at least one month

before eating

Tips when using screw-topped

jars:

zzOnly use jars with dimple safety

button screw tops.

zzKeep the correct lid with the jar,

this makes for a better seal.

zzFill hot jars with hot jam or

chutney and put the lid on straight

away. This means you don’t have

to put anything on top of your

jam/chutney such as greaseproof

paper discs. As the contents cool

the dimple button will be sucked

down as a vacuum forms making

a popping sound. This never fails

to make me smile – I can hear

it wherever I am in the house –

sometimes the simplest things

give the greatest pleasure.

Happy preserving!

The thing about growing

fruit and vegetables is that

you never stop learning,

experimenting, trying

something new.

Mysteries remain unsolved. We

have lived in our house for over

25 years now. Two apple trees

continue to produce a bounty of

fruit every year. One is a Bramley,

the other James Grieve. Bramleys

store in the shed for up to 6

months. A single redcurrant bush

also thrives after all this time. A

gooseberry bush, which struggled

in the garden, now excels at the

allotment. So at least 30 years of

fruiting.

Yet, my newer bushes produce

plenty of leaves but little fruit.

Netting is needed on gooseberries,

red and black currants, to stop the

birds eating the buds and fruit,

while I get raspberries from July

to October with no netting at all. I

have an end plot which means I

have to keep cutting back trees,

but also means I get brambles

producing blackberries. My two

favourite fruit are blackberries and

rhubarb. They can be frozen and

used to accompany any other fruit

in a crumble or pie. Our favourite

at the moment is rhubarb and

strawberry.

Fruit plants are low maintenance,

compared to vegetables. Perhaps

this is why, in their perverse logic,

the council insist that allotment

holders contract to grow more

vegetables than fruit. Permission

has to be sought if you want to

plant a fruit tree. Fruit comes

along every year at the same

time with little effort, but with

vegetables, it seems a constant

battle to nurture them. Wouldn’t

it be great if all vegetable plants

were perennial so you just had to

wait and pick them, instead of regrowing

every year.

But that would defeat the main

objectives of gardening which are

to get yourself plenty of fresh air,

sunshine on your back, healthy

exercise and peace and quiet. A

flask of coffee, the sound of Radio

4. What bliss!

Our allotments have quite a

diverse group of growers now. Old

men no longer predominate. There

are probably more females than

males now and lots of families. I

have to admit that I tend to prefer

the quiet and tend to visit during the

week when the kids are at school.

However, I hope I am a sociable

person, and I enjoy a chinwag with

fellow growers. Sometimes you

can’t get away if someone prefers

talk to work! We don’t seem to get

the politics or fallings-out witnessed

in other allotment areas.

During my allotment experience I

have seen lots of sharing of ideas,

offloading of spare vegetables,

loaning of tools and equipment

and a great deal of mutual respect.

Long may it continue.

Fruits of Creation

We have a magic

basket at home

which sits at the top

of our stairs. It really

is quite amazing.

My children and I regularly drop

our worn or dirty clothes into

this basket, and as if by magic

our clothes then reappear in our

wardrobes, washed and ironed!

I wonder if you are lucky

enough to have such a magic

basket. I guess that at my house

we are particularly lucky, because

we also have a magic kitchen.

When my children and I get

home from work and

school, we find that

delicious hot, healthy

and homemade food

magically appears

on our plates for

us to eat. It’s quite

fantastic! Not only

that, but we have a

magic vacuum-cleaner, a

magic window-cleaner, some

magic polish, a magic garden that

is magically tended and a magic

fridge, freezer and pantry.

I wonder if we ever stop to think

about all the wonderful magical

things in our lives, and where they

come from. When we next drink

a glass of cold fresh water, dip

some freshly baked bread into a

bowl of steaming hot soup, get

into a warm clean bed, put on nice

clean clothes, I wonder if we stop

for a moment to think about the

magic behind it all – who made

it, and where it came from. Or do

we just take it all for granted; all of

those everyday, ordinary things,

so simple and yet so important.

I wonder too if we stop often

enough to think about those who

have so little of this magic in their

lives, so little of the comforts that

we have in this country in such

abundance. I wonder if perhaps it

might be time to be more mindful,

more grateful, and to express our

thankfulness.

The magic behind my washingbasket

is of course a person,

my wonderful wife, to whom my

children and I will from now on

I hope be more mindful of her

labours of love and express

this in thankfulness. Perhaps

we should all take a moment,

maybe at the end of each day,

to be more mindful of all

the good things we

enjoy in God’s good

Creation. To express

our thanks, we might

join the Psalmist who

wrote: “He makes

springs pour water

into the ravines; it

flows between the

mountains. They give

water to all the beasts of the

field; the wild donkeys quench

their thirst. The birds of the sky

nest by the waters; they sing

among the branches. He waters

the mountains from his upper

chambers; the land is satisfied by

the fruit of His work. He makes

grass grow for the cattle, and

plants for people to cultivate –

bringing forth food from the earth:

wine that gladdens human hearts,

oil to make their faces shine, and

bread that sustains their hearts …

All creatures look to You to give

them their food at the proper time.

When You give it to them, they

gather it up; when You open your

hand, they are satisfied with good

things …” (from Psalm 104, the

Holy Bible).

A is for Apple ... but wh

A

is the start of the alphabet and

apple is often the first word a

child will learn. If Eve had not

eaten the fruit in Genesis 3,

the story of Eden would have

looked drastically different. The Hebrew

Bible mentions six types of tree fruit,

many of which appear dozens of times:

grape, fig, olive, pomegranate, date and

apple.

However, today, for a whole new

generation the word Apple means

something totally different! iPhone, imac,

ipod, iwatch, ipad and so on. The link

between technology and fruit does not

stop there. How many companies or

technological products can you think of?

Blackberry: The once default

smart phone choice for the go-getting

executive.

Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango”: the

codename for a major software update

for Windows phones.

Raspberry Pi: A very modest piece

of kit that allows children to build their

own PC at home.

Orange: Who has ever been on a two

for one Orange cinema visit? Now part

of EE Orange was once a major mobile

network provider.

Cranberry Smart Client: Back

in 2007 this clever device was an

alternative to a full PC.

Tangerine: A world wide provider of

mobile teacher assessments for reading

and writing.

The expression ‘what’s in a name’ – or

the slightly more poetic ‘a rose by any

other name’ – means, essentially, that a

name doesn’t matter. It suggests that it’s

the attributes of a person or object that

will dictate what it truly is and how it is

seen by the world.

So why then are so many

electronic devices and technology

firms named after fruit? Maybe no matter

what age you are we can all relate to

fruits? Fruits are delicious, colourful and

beautiful shapes. We can eat them and

even drink them in a variety of ways. We

see them every day, outside and inside.

We are told they are very good for us

and indeed are encouraged to eat five a

day.

Are the technology companies then

cleverly using psychology to make us

desire their products? Those who have

not grown up with the smartphone

revolution often find them over complex

and difficult to operate. Does the

device named after a fruit provide word

association almost convincing the user

that the device is simple and easy to

use?

Why not though name devices after

vegetables or flowers? These are natural

and would convey a simple message.

But do we associate vegetables are

dirty as that come from the ground, and

I hope that this has given you food

or rather fruit for thought. Love them

or loathe them some may say life may

have been much simpler and less

complicated if God had commanded

man not to create the apple devices and

their contempories than the actual piece

of fruit!

To end on a lighter note,

Two maggots are in an apple going on

to the ark when Noah stops them and

says:

“Sorry guys you can only come in

pears!”

The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets

by Eva Rice

The story is set in the

1950s when England

is recovering from the

Second World War.

Penelope and Charlotte

are the main characters and

the story revolves around their

eccentric families.

It is mid-November and

extremely cold and the first

encounter between the two girls

is when Charlotte asks a group

of people standing at a bus stop

“Does anyone want to share a

taxi?”. Charlotte is wearing a long

sea green coat, which plays its

own part in the story. Penelope is

a massive fan of Jonny Ray and

her main ambition in life is to go to

a concert and meet him.

The story unfolds with the

unusual connection

between the two families;

there is Aunt Claire and

Harry, Inigo and Talitha

Orr – very unusual

names.

There seems to be no

shortage of champagne

at the various dinner

parties and there is even

a mention of a member of

the royal household.

I nearly forgot the

handsome American and

he is oh so charming, but sadly

too old for Penelope.

This is a very intriguing story

with an unusual end, definitely

one for the suitcase for that

relaxing holiday. All our book

group members enjoyed this one.

Happy reading!

For Weddings

and Funerals

You don’t have to be a churchgoer

to have a wedding in church or

be ‘religious’ to have a dignified and

meaningful funeral service at St Chad’s.

If you live in the Woodseats or

Beauchief area, St Chad’s would be

delighted to help you, whether it is

planning the Big Day or saying goodbye

to a loved one.

For weddings please contact St Chad’s

church office. For funerals please tell

your funeral director that you would like

to have a church service.

• If you have had a new baby and would

like to celebrate that baby’s birth with

a service in church then please come

to one of our thanksgiving and baptism

mornings at St Chad’s.

The morning will explain the difference

between the two services and give

parents an opportunity to ask any

questions. Please call the church office

on 0114 274 5086 if you are interested in

attending.
