Well it’s finally here, all that planning and preparation comes down to this one single day, but boy isn’t it worth it!? Handmade christmas completely went out the window this year and I’m sorry to say I only made 4 gifts with the rest being brought from the high street. However, it is our first christmas with homegrown produce on the table! We popped down to plot 3c, which happens to be my dad’s allotment, to gather the veg for our christmas dinner 🙂
It was a very downcast day, the aftermath of a storm which left the ground soggy and VERY muddy! We managed to get some carrots, parsnips, turnips and sprouts from my dad’s plot, along with some beetroot from my Lottie to pickle later on. We walked home laden with goodies ready to be roasted and cooked tomorrow, our first homegrown christmas veg!
I hope everyone has a lovely christmas and wonderful new year!
Merry christmas to all and to all a good night 🙂
