Frozen Days

The garden is rather frozen at the moment, but that does give time for planning, catching up and bird watching. There were blackcaps on the feeders this morning, in addition to the usual finches, tits, sparrows, starlings and so on.

One thing I must catch up on is our Potato Day in Drimpton Village Hall on 12th February. It is surprising how many people come, of course Pennards have not only a good range and variety, but also really helpful advice, but it could just be the renowned village food on offer too!

It is also the time of year to browse seed catalogues and dream of the crops to come, oh, and of course to enjoy the Brussels Sprouts and parsnips now well touched by frost.

We all need times like that, lol.

Dropping by to wish you happy holidays, may it be filled with lots of love and peace. All the best in the new year, especially in your gardening. Anna :)

Parsnips sound very good to me! I didn't grow them this year, as the previous year I grew a variety that turned woody and inedible by winter. I'd like to try another variety some day, but have no idea which seeds to purchase.

Wishing you, Mrs. Soggy and Shooky the happiest of holidays!
