Leek Finale

Last summer, we planted some leek seedlings under several Sungold (a type of cherry tomato plant that grows 7-12 feet high). I thought that the plant will be tall enough to not shade the leeks. But I was wrong. The leek seedlings never really took off. So we left them there in the yard over the winter, the spring, and now we need to harvest them to make room for spring/summer planting.

Leeks are wonderful winter crops. We have been pulling a couple leeks out throughout this spring and made delicious leek risotto. But now, it's time to pull them all out (yummy potato and leek soup).

Other notes:
transplanted red onion seedlings yesterday
start beet seeds (Early Wonder Tall Top) indoor (first time)
