Harvest Monday: Leeks to the rescue

I still have a few overwintered leeks in the garden.  They are not pretty, but taste absolutely great.  I used these bad boys (1 2/3 lbs) in a delicious soup last night.  In addition to the leeks, the soup featured home canned veggie soup base, frozen zucchini from my garden, and homemade stock from one of Nina’s chickens.  It was delicious.  Check out what other gardener’s are harvesting of late at Daphne’s Harvest Monday.  even in Maine, winter gardening can be done!

    Your soup sounds yummy! How great that you’re able to over winter things like your leeks.

    Those leeks are looking good. It won’t be too long before the spring veggies start to arrive.

    Those leeks look pretty good to me! And the soup sounds great. As much as I’m looking forward to warmer weather, I must admit that I’m pleased it’s still cool enough for soup.

    That sounds like a very respectable and valid harvest. I love leeks and really wish that leek moth hadn’t found me…

    The leeks look good. That’s something I’ve got to try this year, if I can find the space.

    Your soup sounds delicious, I’m a soup person, I can have it everyday and not get tired of it.
    Which variety of leek are you growing? I grow French baby leeks “Primor”.

      These leeks are King Sieg. This year I am trying Bleu de Solaize, reported to be even more cold hardy than the King. We’ll see!

    They look good. I have quite a few overwintered leeks but they are about the size of green onions. I hope they get growing soon!

    We are growing them this year. Just made potato leek soup for a first time. Soooooo good!
