Gentle harvest

The wet and windy weather had a rest today, so we ventured up to check things out and dig up some parsnips and leeks. They were lovely.

Garlic has appeared

We planted a row of garlic last month and they have begun to grow. They are a bit close to the trampled line from the gate that is becoming a path and I was bothered that we might be damaging them. The very wet weather has kept us off the plot, so the garlic has had a chance. The parsnips tops have wilted so we can get the roots up as we need them. The remaining leeks are still getting fatter. We think we will still be eating leeks into January.
