Merry Christmas!

Wishing everyone out there in blogland a Merry Christmas! On Christmas Day I will be digging up a few parsnips, leeks and Jerusalem artichokes. Christmas dinner wouldn't be Christmas dinner without fresh veggies! Bon Appetit!!

My most favourite day on the allotment is on Christmas Eve when I dig up the veggies to take with us up North.

Have a great Christmas Matron!

Parsnips, Jerusalems and a selection of greens (and reds - Black tuscany and red kales and chard) for us. Great eating your own stuff isn't it? Merry Christmas to you and buddy too.

It is wonderful to have a christmas dinner of home grown vegetables.
Bon apetit!

Merry Christmas to you and Buddy Matron! The fresh from your allotment veggies for Christmas dinner sounds divine! We did that at Thanksgiving, but our plots are finished now. Had I grown the kale (I had trouble with the seedlings from not being able to use the drip hoses), I would still be harvesting.
