    The wife makes a nice Potato Leek Soup. The deer will eat the greens until they get to strong.

    I wonder how the leeks would be in a quiche for breakfast? Spring can't get here soon enough. We have a few flocks of bluebirds at work scouting out the territory, so it's time to clean the nesting box out.

    My wife makes a potatoe/scallion/cheese soup that is pretty tasty as well ZAP. You must have to catch those leaks at the right time. ?

    Except for pictures I never kept track, I think that pic was taken May 21, not much longer for picking after that date. I think you can still dig them once they lose the greens if you have a general idea where they were growing.

    I wish I had taken picks of the quick snow storm that hit us today. It snowed so hard you could not see more than a few hundred feet away. We got about an inch or so. Then, literally, ten minutes later the sun was out!

    We've been harvesting real leeks out of the garden for the past month or two. They are extra good after a winter's frost.
