A bed of leeks
One of the neighbouring allotment holders told me last week that he was planning to pull out all his remaining bed of leeks and put them on the compost heap so that he could get a new crop into the ground. To cut a not very long story short, we agreed that I would dig up all the leeks so that I can use them in our community cafe (the next is on 30th March). I guess we will be serving up leek soup.
