Even as Fall sits poised to moving into Winter, I continue to be amazed at the sheer living Energy of our Plants. Across its base, this Leek is just about the size of Richard's wrist. I planted these Leeks from Tiny Little Seeds in January. They are ready to harvest. I can imagine their Vitality as a part of my Family and me.
While we have been using them over the last few weeks largely as replacements for Onions, we are relative newcomers to using Leeks. I shall have to hunt for some very special Recipes as we give the Leeks their proper Welcome and Thanks on our Little Farm.
