I've lost my blogging Mojo, as they say. With the garden being predominantly dormant at present, I'm finding it hard to find anything new to write about, so I'm going to take a Blog Holiday over the Christmas period, and hope that my enthusiasm will return early in the New Year.
There's only so long that anyone can maintain an interest in looking at pictures of Parsnips, but I'm going to inflict on you one more batch of them. Actually, just to liven things up a bit, this time the Parsnips are joined by some Beetroot! ;/
All but one of the Parsnips are "Duchess" (the other is a "Tender and True"), and the Beetroot are "Boltardy". They are the very last Beetroots from this year's crop - just the little "tiddlers" left once all the others had been used.
Most of the "Duchess" Parsnips were nice and regularly-shaped, with one exception:
The Parsnips are going to be cooked later today, roasted as an accompaniment to a Goose crown. The latter is an essential part of our preparations for the big Christmas Dinner: the fat from tonight's bird will be saved and used for cooking the roast potatoes next weekend.
Before finishing today, let me just wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanks for reading. I hope to be back in a few weeks' time...
