I’m trying to use up the last of the overwintered leeks from the garden so I can prepare that spot for my peppers and tomatoes, the planned 2011 occupants. Thus I harvested a 9.3 oz. and made a batch of potato leek soup with the last of my local potatoes. We also feasted on a delicious salad made from our own overwintered Red Sails lettuce Sunday. Yum. This weeks totals:
1.37 lbs of leeks and lettuce harvested this week for a total of 3.28 lbs this year at a total value of $9.44. My garden expenses to date are $322.12 after a trip to Johnny’s for more seeds, which leaves me in the red for gardening with a seasonal net of $-312.68.
