Aw don't give up! What can be more satisfying than popping down the allotment in the middle of winter to pick your own sprouts for Christmas day. And purple sprouting brocolli....it goes on forever and I love, rather smugly, seeing how much it costs to buy in the grocers. Without these winter crops how would we keep in touch with our plots during the long dark days of winter?
