Shoots and leeks

A few of our newly planted garlic cloves have started to grow. A handful of the winter onions have also sprouted.

The leeks that had bolted to flower turned out to be woody, so it is important to look after leeks so they don't bolt. I think some of ours dried out too much and hence they bolted at the first drop of rain. Any more that do bolt will go straight onto the compost heap.
