Some lasts from the garden

Yesterday I pulled the last of the remaining leeks from the garden.  They were small but exceptionally sweet and tender.  I cleaned and sliced them, then cooked them slowly until nicely caramelized to go atop a pizza.  I also used the last of my frozen pesto on a potato pesto pizza, mmmm.

I ordered leek transplants from Johnny’s Selected Seeds.  They arrived Friday; I am hoping to

get them planted today.  I just love my leeks!

The last of the fall planted spinach will come out today.  I have some spring spinach ready to begin picking.  The slugs and snails have been feasting, though.  Time to get the Sluggo out.

    I’m so happy to have found your nice blog. I spend half the year in Maine where I grow tomatoes and herbs at our cottage by the lake. Love your greenhouse. It has to be so nice to extend the growing seasons.

    Terrific looking leeks. I usually put mine into leek and potato soup. What a great idea to carmelize them and put them on pizza.
