When I first started gardening on the allotment I didn’t realise that I could have fresh veg almost all year round.
Today is the first day of the new year and I harvested some leeks, swede and parsnips
and rather surprisingly some spring cabbage.The ground was quite firm after yesterday’s frost but soft enough to lift the parsnips. They came out nice and clean and it didn’t take too much effort to clean them. All this fresh veg will be made into a thick country vegetable soup, just the thing for a chilly winter’s day.
