First allotment visit of the year

Decided to brave the elements to get to the allotment and check things out – obviously everything is saturated !!.

The allotment  looks very bleak – but at least i can see the allotment – unlike a lot of people who have gardens and homes destroyed by the floods following the rain.  

All seemed ok so i decided to get a bit of veg to take home , Dug (out of the mud) some leeks, sprouts (a sprout is not just for christmas !) and some parsnips 

sprouts, parsnip and leeks

Veg in January

It all looked good but when my wife cooked off the parsnips they were unusable – all brown inside . My first attempt at parsnips so will have to do better this year .
