The Post-Christmas Post

Five Christmas Meals
Four Days
Three bowls of custard (sans pudding)
Two Parents Visited
One Messy Apartment

but no Christmas Ham!?!?!?!? I can't believe that the traditional Christmas Ham did not make an appearance at any of our functions. Twas not because inept balcony gardener and family miraculously turned vegetarian overnight, nor did we realise that pigs are beautiful and intelligent creatures (a truth rather than simply a myth created by the producer of Babe) but just an oddity that shall be remedied next festive season.

However here are some piccies of how my new garden joined in the festivities

First we have an updated picture of the Christmas succulent, and yep the big box was for me!!!

The table decoration for the first ever Christmas Eve meal at my place (and yes i omitted ham, but i omitted Turkey too so maybe it was not a traditional meal afterall

And a salad to accompany said meal, with produce entirely procured from the balcony

Suffice to say my mother's face when she saw the garden for the first time was priceless, and I am still smiling from it

We had no ham either... perhaps it was the Irish pork scare... no, that wasn't it either, because we did have roast pork... it did feel strange not having left over ham.

That's an impressive balcony salad. You may have to change your blog title to totally apt balcony gardener! Thanks for following my blog. Happy New Year
