So I missed last Monday because I'd picked up the lurgy and didn't do much for a few days. Luckily I started feeling a bit better for Christmas week, and I had a few days off work on holiday too :)
My main seed order came in, which is exciting. I use the Organic Gardening catalogue and get 10% off as a Garden Organic member.
Some parsnips for Christmas lunch too. I didn't get a photo of the final meal but it included chestnut roast too (using chestnuts we harvested ourselves from the woods in autumn that I'd kept in the fridge). We also made our own gravy and bread sauce (using herbs from the garden)
On Christmas Eve I went round to friends' houses delivering cards and presents, including jars of my elderberry, apple and clove jelly. I've had good reports on this :).
And today I returned to work (sigh) but it was sunny and I popped to the plot at lunchtime and picked some chard for tea,
And picked a chilli from the houseplant to go with tea too. They're starting to get quite wrinkly! But seem ok.
Zzz feeling a bit pooped after returning to work and with the tail-end of illness. So to end, a not very good but sunny Christmassy photo of my decorated birch twigs! Usually I collect some holly and ivy and make a Christmas wreath but what with being ill I didn't get round to it this year.
Hope you all had a good Christmas and have a great New Year!
Linking in with Harvest Monday on Daphne's Dandelions :)
