At this point, I've rather tired of staring at the leeks in my garden. Having never grown them before, I'm particularly stuck by how slow-growing they are. Also, they are no where near the size of the monster leaks you see at the farmers market. I probably should have spaced them farther apart and applied more compost midway through the growing season. Oh well, that won't stop me from digging up a few of them to sample this weekend.
On the other hand, the winter scallions and leeks that I transplanted back in August are doing really well. The scallions are practically ready to harvest. For some reason, I had it in my head that they wouldn't be ready until at least November. Not that I'm complaining as the onions we picked earlier in the year are long gone.
