The day Mrs. G. and I have been longing for finally arrived. Dressed in warm coats and wellies, armed with bags and a small saw, we found a gap in the rain and headed towards the allotment. Harvest time. Oh yes, the time had come to harvest our brussels sprouts. Yippee!

Don't they look great?! After recommendation we've put them in a bucket of water, ready for peeling and left in water on the 24th, ready for cooking on the 25th. I can't wait!

We took a chance on the parsnips as well. Some of them were big and some weren't. Oh well, we'll try them out anyway. There are still plenty in the ground for later. 

After the harvest it was time to light the fourth candle and have a cup of tea and a biscuit. I ended up watching a rom-com with the older Master M. and his little sister before baking tomorrow's dessert and some of the food. We're having a 'getting into the Christmas spirit' do here tomorrow evening. It's time to start the party!
