I've had an extended holiday the last few weeks. Lots of snow and ice have meant that I couldn't garden, - Catching a very rare cold from being inside too much didn't help, and my son was poorly too, so all in all, by the time it got to Christmas, i'd already had time off, and was ready to relax and eat too much.
Luckily my hard work earlier in the year had paid off, and although i've ignored my greenhouse for most of this month I still had a wonderful harvest of salad leaves on Christmas day
From the bottom (clockwise) - Red mustard, Mizuna, red veined sorrel, Coriander confetti, Chervil, Rocket.
I had hoped to add russian Kale leaves to the collection, but they were a bit covered up.
Likewise the spinach, cavelo nero and chard, and the Pigeons didn't like the idea of us having home grown calabrese for christmas dinner
But I did make the stuffing from homegrown Sage, and used Rosemary and thyme in the trivet for cooking the Turkey (a la Jamie Oliver's instructions).
Must try for Brussel sprouts next year....
