Well the least remaining veggies in the above patch is a small but lovely clump of leeks.
If you grow leeks you’ll know they’re around for ages because they take so bloody long to get to a decent size.
I’ve had my eye on these chappies for Christmas dinner since August.
Then some bright spark said to me:
Leeks aren’t a traditional Christmas vegetable!
Well apart from telling him to bugger off I also informed him that in England turkey isn’t a traditional Christmas food either – we imported the idea at the start of the century from our American cousins.
We used to eat mostly Goose.
Anyway, so our guests at Christmas will be offered home-grown leeks as part of their vegetable choice.
Bird wise we’re not sure yet, although I always thought it would be funny to offer Red Grouse, but by it’s other traditional name.
Just so I could tell people that my wife was looking forward to moorcock for Christmas 🙂
