Although I usually have my plot completely to myself apart from the birds and insects, over the past couple of days, I have being sharing my little spot of nature and sharing what I have learned. I think that it is my leeks that I am most proud of because there is not a single moment in the year that I don't have leeks on my plot in whatever stage of their life cycle they are in.
I truly get a sense of pride when someone else digs up one of my leeks that have been grown from the seeds of leeks grown from the seeds of leeks that I grew. It really has been several generations of leek since anyone else got involved and these leeks could not be more mine.
I love leeks. You do need to dig them up because that network of white roots hold fast to the soil but once out of the ground they can be so easily cleaned up and smell delicious. I do feel quite the allotmenteer when I get to give them to friends.
Josie came to the allotment with me in the afternoon and was delighted to discover that despite the rain, the river was shallow enough for her to run around in. There has never been such a small amount of water in this river.
I would love it if you could leave a comment. Please give it a go, I'm working on making it easier
