Apple Pruning in December

Yes best to prune apple trees between Nov and Feb so now is an ideal time, trim each branch by a third to an outward facing bud, cut any branches that overlap, to reduce rubbing and cut out all old & deseased branches.
The peas in the green house are doing well & its still much warmer inside than out!
And a nice little harvest:

Swede, Leeks & Parsnip.

We had Leek & Potato* soup for lunch, then had the Swede mashed with carrot & roasted Parsnip & Potatoes* with our Sunday dinner. 

Can't get fresher than that.

*Potatoes dug up a few weeks ago. 

Thanks for reading/returning. Ian & Jo
