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.
Hi, let's start a conversation - right here, right now! If you have a question, I'll also endeavour to get back to you over at your place.If anyone is having problems leaving comments, do contact me on vegplotting at gmail dot com or @malvernmeet if a quick tweet is more convenient for you.Thanks xxxMy general policy re commentsI value genuine commenters for the conversation they bring. Those aiming to link back and give credence to commercial websites (thankfully rare) will be removed.Blog posts are kept open for your Comments for as long as possible - for at least 3 months. I've reluctantly taken the decision if a post comes in for a sp@m attack after that time, I'll remove its Comments facility. I've found genuine comments are rarely left after 3 months, but dozens of sp@m comments are :( Removing these takes away the joy that a genuine comment might be left one day.
