I had a lovely morning's walk round my garden on this very mild January day complete with camera.  The buds are fattening nicely on my rhododendrons -

My foxes go off with my onions if i leave them out to dry and I have seen one wrenching long runner beans from the bottom of my bean plants so why not kohlrabi?

Awww, shame.  Do you have fox visitors.  Luscious kohlrabi would be right up their street.

It has been so mild and dry today i have accomplished a lot in the winter garden and found my Hammamelis mollis (witch hazel), both red and yellow in flower and three or four brown wallflowers.  My evergreen ferns are delightful as well so must take my camera up tomorrow if i can walk after the last three hectic days of gardening.  I am so pleased it is not raining that i find it hard to stop for anything but food and drink!  Oh and my hellebores have buds on now too.
