|Thomas helps his Pa collect a bucket load of big beetroot on Christmas eve|
On Christmas eve, Pa took Thomas up to the veggie patch to pick the beetroot to put in a big silver bucket. It was hard work for Thomas, because some of the beetroot were nearly as big as him! Back at the house, the beetroot was boiled in a big pot. When it was done and allowed to cool, I slipped the skins off easily under running water.
