Freezing December

posted in: Gardening | 0

Gave up in the garden and went to the two bridges hotel in Dartmoor for Xmas, it's been the coldest December I can remember in Cornwall, but the plants are surprisingly hanging on in there.  The other day still managed to get all the vegetables and herbs for a meal fresh from the garden. Still growing ( just ) are :-

Leeks

Carrots ( not growing, but still in the ground and edible)

Small Parsnips

Sprouting Broccoli

Curly Kale – black tuscan

Thyme

Bay leaves

Sage

Rosemary

 

The broad beans are looking good considering, in fact I think I can see the flower buds forming.
