A week from today and the bulk of the Christmas gorging will have been concluded. By that stage I suspect that I will be looking for lighter meals. In anticipation of this impending change of diet I decided to check on the salads which I have growing in the greenhouse. Although I have not supplied them with any heat I have placed a fleece tunnel over them. I have several cos lettuce and mustard plants growing on and apart from a few small slug holes they all seem to be quite healthy and with no frost damage. It looks as if I will have a good crop of salad leaves for cutting and consuming in the aftermath of Christmas.
