The vegetable garden for me in December is a little weak... still, a few things are growing. Here's some of the veg I've been harvesting this month.
Left/Below:Leek Musselburgh, sown in April 2012, and planted outside in June. Its been very slow to grow and not really much of a harvest at all.
Below: I'm still pulling and using carrots in December - small but tasty.
|Above: Kale 'Nero di Toscana', sown in April and planted outside in June, is still growing and producing.|
|Above and Below: Carrots and Celery are still growing in the veg box. The celery had very stunted growth this year and didn 't really produce proper stalks.|
|Above and below: This month I cut celery tops to add to soup - using the leaves like parsley to add flavour.|
Suppose a little veg in December is better than no veg at all.
