Brussels sprouts tops and salad leaves.
Going to make "Summer and Winter soup" ( some summer and some winter type ingredients) or as usual "What I can find" soup

Did your late planted potatoes make it ok?  What else do you still have on the plot, Crystalmoon?
 
Kale and leeks here too.  Also celery, landcress, rocket, also lettuce and cress from the greenhouse.  Have covered my chard stumps with cloches, I think it was deer that ate them.  In this mild spell we already have some regrowth from the centre   :wave:

Hi Galina sadly the frosts have been hard here for quite some time so my late planted spuds haven't made it even though they were covered in fleece & in plastic raised beds to keep the soil warmer. I haven't dug them up yet though....the foliage has wilted very badly so I don't expect to get even one usable spud but I will leave them in the ground until Christmas eve & have a look then, you never know perhaps there will be a few. I had no intention to grow them so nothing ventured nothing gained  :tongue3:

I've got lots growing for later in the Winter, variety of cabbages, Purple sprouting, Calabrese etc but I've only got Calvero Nero & Leeks to harvest at the mo. I'm munching my way through the veg in my freezer too, still got lots of courgettes to use up but I have finished off the beetroot, sweetcorn, beans & peas. Got quite a few butternuts to eat, expect they will be finished some time in January.

I've got a huge Chard still growing at the allotment but it has turned very bitter so I am letting the wildlife enjoy it.

Wishing you a wonderful Christmas xxxx

Had the first sprouts today with our tea. They are called Revenge. Not sure if a good idea when you are in a small caravan. :glasses9:

Leeks, Brussels sprouts, Chinese Cabbage, Mustard leaves, Rocket and land cress for a spicy salad .... and tomatoes!  Little yellow tomatoes still perfectly fresh in the bubblewrapped greenhouse on the long-dead plants!  I don't know about you but I think home-grown tomatoes in January is a little victory!
