We went over to the allotment yesterday afternoon. Although there were plenty of footprints about, including those of four legged beasties, there wasn't anyone else there. We had difficulty getting into our plot, as the padlocks were iced over, so D had to jump over the gate. Unfortunately we will not be having our home-grown parsnips on the plate, as we couldn't see them for the snow, and even if we had removed the snow, the ground is so hard, that we would not have been able to pull them out in one piece.
D started picking the sprouts of the plant one by one, but that would have been so time-consuming, plus his fingers were getting pretty cold with the ice, so he snapped the best looking Brussels sprouts plant to bring home. Anyway, I must go - but before I do - I would like to wish Each and Everyone of you a Happy Christmas and Happy Eating with Friends, families and loved ones!
