Picked this week

Picked this week? Well, no, nothing really. We lifted the last of the leeks in a mild spot of weather this week. As we expected, they had been frosted far too much. The white, underground tips were ok but not the stems - still, have salvaged what we can, roasted with pork.

Meanwhile, from the allotment and grown by the previous tenant, comes this bizarre carrot.
I'd like to be able to grow some as large as the ones we've lifted - just would prefer a more sensible shape!
