So much for our plans to go down to the allotment today to do some work. Though we did manage to get there, the heavy rain meant all we could do was drop off the bags of compost we bought yesterday and pick some parsnips to go with the dinner tonight.
The soil is very, very wet. Nevertheless, the parsnips are in good shape. We will be having them roasted with a pheasant, roast potatoes and a stuffing made from a bit of the sausage loaf I made recently, plus hazel nuts and leeks (one of the other crops still growing on the allotment at the moment.)
