What to do, where to go and sim­ple plea­sures in De­cem­ber

When grass is lim­ited dur­ing win­ter, you may no­tice some farm­ers sup­ple­ment­ing their sheep’s diet with ex­tra feed. This can be hay or silage, but also for­age brassica crops, such as turnips or swede. Some­times the crops are left in situ and the an­i­mals can nib­ble at the leaves be­fore un­cov­er­ing the roots.
