Hogmanay haul

After several weeks of neglect following our temporary move away from Lawson Park, the Kitchen Garden looked a tad forlorn when I started my tidy-and-harvest session today. There were - surprisingly - quite a few passers-by despite the drizzle, but I do miss having the cats around when I'm there now - they however think nothing of their wild former home as they lounge among the central heating in our new place.
The Honesty Stall would have done good business had I anything green to spare for sale.
So - on the 31st December 2007 we harvested a basket of the following:
Turnip 'Golden Globe' (growing in the polytunnel)
Mixed salad (also in the tunnel)
Savoy cabbage
Lamb's lettuce
Black radish 'Hamburg' (insanely hot to taste)
Chrysanthemum greens
Scorzonera
Parsnip 'Tender and true'
Beetroot 'Chioggia'
Radicchio
Burdock
Celeriac
Brussel sprout 'Cavalier'

The worst weather here is yet to come, but I'm still justifiably chuffed with this for a Hogmanay haul...
