    I've been off the plot for a few days because of the rain. To Do:-

    Pick blackcurrants - the branches are virtually laying down with the fruit at the moment.
    General harvesting - carrots, potatoes, kale, cauli, courgette (maybe), cucumber, some onions and flowers.
    Weed the brassica cage - I did the far side a few days ago, but I need to take up the net and do underneath and the other margin.
    Mow. Dammit.
    Plant out more caulis.
