Christmas Harvest

It’s Christmas Eve, the big day is almost here! Today I picked the veg from the allotment for Christmas dinner. Yesterday a months worth of rain fell on already saturated ground and the wind really picked up too, it did sound rather scary outside late last night. Sadly many homes across the UK were flooded, another great big kick in the teeth from 2020.

Enough depressing news, back to the veg.

The sprouts and carrots were a breeze to pull up but the parsnips were a bit stubborn as they usually are, the squelchy ground really didn’t help but I managed, plus I didn’t need many due to having a very small Christmas this year.

Just as well really!

    1. Thanks Sue! Everything was delicious, especially the parsnips. I still have some carrots left in the ground, not sure how many will escape the slugs now but I’ll lift the last lot as soon as it’s possible.
