This Week’s Harvest – 2017, week 8

So with March around the corner and having a plot full of leeks I have decided that it is time to start using them in earnest.

Still have loads of leeks to use!

So I decided to start harvesting them yesterday. I only harvested 5 – 2 to use for my potato and leek soup and 3 to freeze. After all the leeks were cleaned and trimmed, I had a nice yield of 500g.

Slightly over zealous with the trimming – 500g of leeks this week!

Over the next few weeks I will be harvesting the rest of the leeks, mainly to freeze so I can enjoy my own leeks in soups, casseroles, pies and risottos all through the summer!
