Merry Christmas Veggies

So… the last of the turkey has been eaten, all the pressies have been unwrapped… It flies by doesn’t it? But what a great Christmas we’ve had.  Time spent with our family and friends, laughing and joking, drinking glasses of festive fizz 🙂

This year we hosted the big day for my Mum and Dad.  To give ourselves more time on Christmas morning, we went to the allotment on Christmas Eve to collect our veggies, we had some help from two little elves 🙂

Pulling the delicious carrots was very exciting…

Next we moved on to the monster parsnips…

We had lots of sprouts and cabbages to pick …

I came down to the plot briefly on Christmas Eve Eve and got speaking to another plot holder.   He had fantastic parsnips and sprouts in his hands as well as a big beaming smile… ‘This is what it’s all about, growing veg to enjoy on Christmas Day’.  I couldn’t agree more 🙂

We had enough veg to share with our friends and they were so happy with it.  It was magic to enjoy the harvesting with our friends and the little Elves had fun digging and looking after Jassy 🙂

  2. Fabulous photos – and what a cheerful looking crowd you made. I bet it all tasted super! I’ve been absent from the patch for nearly a month being ill. Fortunately we had Christmas with my Mum in Bristol and had her home-grown veggies for the feast.
