Growing Leeks

This year I decided I wanted to grow leeks even though i hadn’t grown them before.So in March I sowed a variety called ‘Musselburgh’, by april they had shot up and were growing well. When they were about pencil thick I planted them outside, first by dibbling a hole and then twisting them into it so all the roots go in, I don’t fill in the hole just water it to the top and leave them to get on with it.

Winter Greens

Well it’s well into october now with the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder. So I decided to sow some winter greens, Red and green lettuces along with some spinach to keep us going through the cold winter months. Last year when I grew spinach I transplanted them outside and they did rather well so hopefully if the weather isn’t too bad (fingers crossed) I can plant them outside.

What winter greens are you growing?
