Look at these Gorgeous Leeks I Just Dug Up!

[URL=.html][IMG][/IMG][/URL]

They were planted last year, and they overwintered. In late March of this year, they were as big as a thick pencil. Now look at them!

I grew them from seed last year.

I have a whole tray of leek seedlings to go in the garden soon so I'll have more next year. And while these will last me for a month or two, I have eight pencil-sized ones ready to move into a sunnier plot. That will take me through August, I think.

Leeks are the best for soup, which is something I love to make because it makes it easier to get in those 2.5 cups of vegetables each day.

2. Absolutely gorgeous!!! I love leeks more than anything. It is sad that our growing

season in Georgia is so short. But they are worth the effort and the flowers are wonderful. Only thing bad is those wild leeks that spring up in the lawn and flower beds in the early spring.
