Leeks for second crop

With the early potatoes now dug a portion of the vegetable patch presented itself for replanting. I had been growing on leek plants for this very purpose.


Of course it is late in the year and of course these will not grow into show winning specimens, but they will grown into very usable vegetables. As planted and with leaves and roots trimmed the leeks are presently about nine inches from tip to toe and about the thickness of a pencil. By the time they hit the plate they will have grown to at least the thickness of a broom handle.


Weather permitting I shall probably pull out the now denuded pea vines today and replant that area with quick growing salad vegetables. A really interesting day I know!
