We planted the leeks last year in stages. There were two long rows of leeks that we realised were too spread out, so we in-filled with another row later. The last leeks to go out are considerably smaller that the first ones. Jean took some more leeks today and that finished the bigger ones off. A few had suffered in the cold weather - they had had too much water in between their leaves and then when it froze the stem was damaged. The remaining, smaller leaks (which are still a good size) seem to have fared better. Fresh, crisp leeks are a delight to eat.
