Settling in to the New Year

After Christmas's snow and frost, the weather seems to have settled back to mild but windy - VERY windy at times! We had a quick trip to the allotment last week, mainly to check up on things but also to plant out the Christmas tree in its new spot, add some extra ties to the new found-on-freegle pear tree and sow some late garlic bulbs bought in a sale. There's not really anything to pick at the moment - a row of parsnips waiting till I need them, and some kale coming ready for maybe next month. I've given up hope for any brussels - none are forming proper sprouts at all!
At home, I can see the buds on the snowdrops so it shouldn't be long before they're in flower.
