Alternative advent calendar #7

So this is supposed to be an alternative advent calendar, you know, for Christmas right?  So why am I  posting about the Allotment?  A ha!  Because we've been putting the allotment to bed for Christmas; burning the weeds and old tomato plants which gave us tomatoes right up to 1st December, and keeping a close eye on our leeks...

... these bad boys were looking rough when I last saw them (approximately three weeks ago), but a couple good frosts and they have been completely rejuvenated they love a good frost!  They were beginning to show signs of leek rust (red marks on the leaves) but that has all but gone and has been replaced with fantastic grey/green leaves and these will be a big part of our Christmas day meal.
