Christmas Dinner Part 2

So I've collected the goose, now I have two sticks of sprouts!I love sprouts!
I might have a bit of a job digging up my leeks, but as I'm working on Christmas Day and we appear to be thawing out a bit in London, I might be able to get a fork in the ground on the 26th!

What lovely sticks. I hope to grow some nice sprouts next season after trying for 2 years now. Happy Holidays!

The brussel sprouts are beauties! I picked about a half pound of them today as well, and we enjoyed them as part of the Christmas eve dinner.

A white garden for Christmas!
Best wishes, work and all.

The brussel sprouts look quite tasty! How will you serve them? With melted cheese? Or simply with butter? I'm getting hungry just looking at them.Merry Christmas and a Warmer New Year!

I'm working too, but Christmas is Christmas and well done on your sprouts.

What lovely Brussels sprouts! It was a bad year for them in my area, but I managed to get 2 big stalks from a local farmer, and they were one of the most delicious things to make it to my table this season. Hope you got the chance to garden a bit.

Your brussels look great. Our site is windy and ours never tend to do well. We have also had lots of snow and ice and it took a bit of effort to get the parsnips up for xmas dinner!
