    Leeks, winter radish, beans (frozen), kale from the plot, and having an organic veg box delivered with all local produce in.

    The box has out Christmas meat in (beef and a ham) which is all locally reared too

    The usual parsnips, sprouts, kale, carrots and leeks plus I'll have a look how the scorzonera is doing.

    Not as much of our own produce tomorrow as we ate a lot of it when we celebrated Xmas early with our family in the UK earlier in the month!

    Own goose was eaten, so we're having a simple turkey breast( simple as in easy to prepare rather than exceptionally low IQ!!!)
    Also own tomato soup,peas , spuds,cabbage,stuffing(bread,herbs,eggs,apples) ...had to buy carrots and parsnips for tomorrow.
    Yum!

    All veggie stuff this year is our own produce, except packet walnuts and the bramley apples which I swapped with a neighbour for some spuds. We're having sweet dumpling squash stuffed with leeks, stilton and creme fraiche, served on a bed of raw pak choi. And for mains it'll be roast pork with apple sauce, mashed taters, broad beans and just a tablespoon each of black kale with cream and walnuts.
