      Wednesday jobs
      I knew today was going to be busy, but any ideas of spending any time gardening were annihilated by 5.45 am when I logged into work. Major issues over night have taken most of the day to sort out.

      Watering
      Harvest cucumbers, check raspberries, blueberries

                    Last night we lifted the main crop potatos and left them on the surface to harden the skins. Then started to prune the fruit trees back to the espalier wires and leave next years fruiting spurs. We did about 1/3 of them so tonight will be the finish of that, some watering, scan the brassicas for damage and hopefully get home for tea before it gets dark!
