Christmas veggies

Got these in today ready for dinner tomorrow with the oldies.
Forking leeks out of frozen ground...

...and carrots...

...the sprouts were a bit easier:

Happy Christmas to us all, we're utterly brilliant.

Tree O'Clock

Did my bit today by taking part in the BBC Breathing Places Tree O'Clock event to plant as many trees as possible between 11 and 12 o'clock today in an attempt to break the world record for most trees planted in one hour. I toddled along to our local event at Allestree Park organised by WildDerby and along with lots of other people planted my dozen trees. Hopefully next year they'll do something really useful and plant up the golf course.

Not only that I also scored a few hawthorn whips to plant at home; I've used them to fill in some gaps in the hedge on the plot. Regular eco-warrior I am today.
