The plants are all dying down well now, the romanesco got kind of blown sideways but is still in the ground so I will just pick that one first. The rain has made the leaf mulch nice and soggy and hopefully it will rot down in the next few weeks.
I pulled up a few leeks and some more rocket which has turned out to be indestructible.
I found a nice way to cook sliced parsnips: wrapped in foil with some oil or marg, a chopped apple, and some thyme/salt/pepper and a little water. It steams but also caramelises a bit. Yum. My hubby and I like them but the kids are still doubtful.
Last bit of news
I am on the last handful of onions that I grew myself. I started using them in August/September sometime so considering I thought the crop was crappy, in fact it has lasted me for quite a number of weeks. Everyone says, oh I wouldn't bother with onions, they are cheap to buy, but I feel they have good flavour and I like that reminder of my hard work, still paying off after the season is long over. Next year I want to try red onions, echalots and hopefully my overwintering garlic will be better than last year's. (oh i still have little tiny white onions shoots too, I hope they will give me some spring onions in the right month)
