Temperature -4C in Edinburgh last night. It's definitely time to start digging parsnips. Here's a view from the battlefield. 'The Student' turns out to be a bit of a brute and took more than a bit of persuasion to come out in one piece (both of them). I stopped after two a) because I had plenty for the table. b) because I was fairly exhausted (and muddy) by then. (Sorry they're not cleaned up but the water is off now to stop freeezing pipes) I hope Daphne doesn't mind me stretching here Harvest Monday theme by one day, but it's not light enough to get to the plot any weekday.
When we went grocery shopping last weekend Mrs M asked, as we approached the vegetable section, "What have we got from the plot at the moment" to which I replied (just a little smugly). Oh, we've got parsnips, potatoes, carrots, swedes, seakale beet, cabbages, kale, brussel sprouts... leeks, oh and jerusalem artichokes. We bought some mushrooms and moved on.
