I started these leeks last spring and left them to grow in a clump for most of the summer. Last August, I dug the clump up and set them out individually to grow for a winter harvest.
Because of the move, I never did get around to harvesting them this past winter. And because of the mild winter we experienced, they continued to grow and thrive unprotected. Normally, they would have been toast by January. This past week, I decided to dig them up before the weather got too hot and they decided to bolt.
Not a true first harvest for this year but I'll take it.
