I finally decided it was time to dust off the gardening gloves and head back into the Cottontails garden yesterday.
I'm afraid it's been more or less ignored since I wrote my last post here in October and it is in a bit of a sorry state.
But clearly some activity has been happening out there over the winter as something rather massive was just poking out through the earth...
An extraordinarily large parsnip!
Anyway, massive root vegetables aside, I made good progress by weeding and digging over the herb / salad bed.
No sign of the 'overwintering' peas and beans that I planted in October. Should they be shooting up by now?
Will try and do a bit more later today, and in the meantime any recipes for a monster parsnip would be gratefully received...
