This selection of root vegetables, dug today, is typical of the selection we are enjoying at the moment.
The beetroot are seem to have a better flavour when stored in the ground, rather than in a clamp.
The parsnips are so long that they are difficult to lift without the lower taproot snapping off, as in this one.
The leeks have grown well this year. They keep much cleaner, without any leaf fragments getting between the leaves, when covered with polythene.
