A couple years ago, I discovered I loved leeks.
Yesterday, I bumped my tray of leek seedlings.
I will be starting over.
I will not be denied my potato leek soup!

Its not to late to start, my own leeks are still in the seed packet.. And We are just using up the last of our leeks from last years planting… 🙂 Happy Planting!
I will plant some more tomorrow! Thanks for the encouragement!
I almost did that with my tomatoes! Sorry for your loss! Keep on planting 🙂
I dropped some basil too, but I’ve got quite a bit started. I will do another tray tomorrow! Hugs!
I love leeks but Mr MBaF doesn’t, so I won’t devote lotti space to them until he’s converted. How did you make your discovery??
Do you grow them in a manurey trench? I got absolute gigantic ones when I did that.
I try to add a new ‘vegetable’ each year, Leeks was my ‘try it, you might like it’ vegetable. Well, I did! Your right, my hubby not so crazy, and only a couple kids were interested. I was surprised how tender they cook up.
My raised beds have quite a bit of organic compost added each fall, then I top it off in the spring….I just plant them in fairly deep row, pull the soil up as they grow. May have to explore getting them to grow a bit larger…does the flavor change as they get larger?
Thanks for your growing tip!
You know what else is good? Leek and mushroom pie. Sooooo good.
I hate knocking over seed trays. 😦
ohh, must hunt a recipe for that, sounds delicious–love mushrooms too! Thanks for sharing!
Oh, ouch! Like Chutes and Ladders, back to the beginning! 😉
Oh drats (or as spellcheck would have me proclaim, ‘darts’, LOL) Your photographs are so nice Stacey, only you could make them look so poetic. Giddy up and start again, no doubt your magic greenhouse will smother you in leek yields soon enough. x K
