Got Our Christmas Veggies

Tuesday afternoon was cold and breezy but we decided a quick trip to the plot was in order to harvest some fresh vegetables for our Christmas lunch. We didn't have any intentions of hanging about on the plot just harvest and leave.

As it happened Sue couldn't resist a little bit of video of our plot neighbour’s mini greenhouse which has taken a real battering from the winds over the last month or so. The surprise is that it’s still standing although I use that term in its loosest sense.

There’s a temptation to think the wind is going to win at any minute but on each successive visit over the last few weeks its condition has deteriorated.
Once the videoing was completed it didn't take long to harvest some carrots, parsnips, Brussels sprouts and leeks and we were heading back home for a hot drink.
Wonder if we’ll need to do any more harvesting before the New Year.

  1. Oh that poor greenhouse. I hope it's rescued. I'd so love a greenhouse it pains me to see an unloved one. That's a cracking haul of veggies. You're right, I think you're set until New Year there. Enjoy!

    1. The plot with the greenhouse is a bit unloved so I'm not too hopeful about its chances of survival.

  2. I'm so sorry about the green house. Actually you got special yields for a special moment.

    1. At least it's not our greenhouse Endah which has survived the windy weather.
