    Nor parsnips, whilst we are on it! Just checked the plot and over about 10 brussells plants we have enough produce for a small lunch for one - but they are frozen solid.

    Good job we are off to little sis' house, and she will have shopped with a holocaust in mind

    No gardening today. No photo either!
