The leeks are now coming to the end of there lives, some of them are going to run to seed as winter vegetables often do at this time of the year when it starts to warm up. We have very few left in the garden now. On Friday I lifted a lot of them to make them into soup with potatoes for the study day we had today. It does seem a bit of a theme at this time of the year when I want to clear the garden after another winter, turn the vegetables into soup. The group that was here today did seem to enjoy the soup for lunch.
