Barbs has a cold, and I have added a turkey - a gobbler that had not found a mate, and was with a bunch of bachelors (I am a great believer in not killing the golden goose, so there are a lot left to breed) for Christmas to freezer-larder. We had a rather chilly barbie with some Polish friends of ours and our good neighbors and some wild pig spare ribs. We only ate the latter.
While it might seem a good time for a barbeque, it's actually being very cold with night temperatures down 8 and days not quite breaking twenty degrees centigrade. The peas are liking it, nothing else is much. I got to see Norm's yams plants today - the plants are a variety of Oxalis, and they look rather like the 'clover' weed. I hope they grow as well.
