Late Leeks ?

March 30, 2012

The 2011 summer was half way over when I added Leeks to a seed order from Johnny’s. I didn’t start the seeds until the last week of July and didn’t read the recommended start (early spring haha ) until much later.

Next time perhaps I should do my homework and research things a little better. Luckily, this time we got away with it. The last two I pulled were beginning to form the central stalk or scape. It doesn’t take long for the core of the leek to morph into a woody dowel once this starts so I pulled the 10 largest ones.

A little lean, but not bad for “mistakes”, eh?

Trimmed for the crisper drawer:

And yes, the seeds are already started for 2012’s fall & winter leek harvest.

    Gardening is all about trial and error!

      LOL, quite true. Usually my success can be measured by the plant carnage in my wake.
