It was the turn of the leeks to go into the soil today, they look so small and thin when you plant them and then by winter they have got to such a good size. I have found leeks to be such a useful vegetable in the kitchen over winter. We do go through a lot, that is one of the hard things to get right, growing enough useful vegetables. In a way it is much better to grow more and make a load of soup than having to go out and buy more. This year I am growing two, L. ‘Musselburgh’ and L. ‘Northern Lights’.
