Crop of maris peer from my new half plot surprisingly undamaged, a few turnips and some sprouts.

Dug up 13 celeriac to store in the shed
All that's left in the ground now are a few Spring Onions and about 6 Chiogga

My parsnips are still going strong. Pulled up a couple for lunch and I was delighted by the size of one of them... my biggest, juiciest parsnip yet!

Hubby's been harvesting the carrots all week, why he doesn't bring for more than one or two days at a time🙄

At their best when they are really freshly dug and........ who could resist a quick trip to the plot  ;)

Sprouts, carrots, huge parsnips, one pathetic swede (why can't I grow these?) leeks and a savoy cabbage.

Yes normally I would agree, but back then the weather was set to be wet & or frosty & we were very busy, plus washed & wrapped in damp kitchen paper & wrapped tightly in a plastic bag they keep quite well for 3/4 days.

Leeks, leeks and a few more leeks...

Lovely covered in cheese or white sauce then finished off in the oven as an extra veg on Christmas Day.... and again a few days later.

Supplied the family with a few for their meals at home.

Noting else from my little plot.

Lifted the last of my carrots ages ago snowdrop as I grew less than I once did - less space these days.

Like your method of keeping them fresh.  8)

Multiple pickings over this Christmas week of parsnips, leeks, carrots and brussels sprouts.
Good load of our potatoes from the potato store.
Just picked a load of Kale for this weekend.
