Musing on gardening and life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
Today's freezing fog has given an almost sculptural quality to the sunflowers I left on the plot to help feed the birds this winter.
The leeks and carrots harvested today were frozen, but it didn't harm their flavour for our (early) Christmas lunch!
I have still got sunflowers out in the garden, mine don't look sculptural like yours though. I have got parsnips outside ready for Christmas day, and have got swede, although they look quite small, not sure if they will be edible, I have bought one from Sainsburys just in case. Have a good Christmas and a Happy New Year.
I'm envious - I had total parsnip failure this year! I love swede too, but this is a veg too far as far as NAH is concerned.Have a great Christmas and New Year!
Sunflowers for me next year on the plot.This is a great photo. I have parsnips and turnips in the garden-like Louise's they are quite small. Everything else if from Allington Farm Shop.Good things to you for Christmas and the New Year too.
