I will probably start harvesting these soon. Once they get to about the thickness of my thumb they are nice in about anything that requires a bit of shallot or onion. Besides, there are over a 100 in the gardens somewhere.
The leeks were planted in worm compost from my worm factory. I noticed that there are some feral pumpkin plants and tomato plants growing. They are not competing with the leeks, so I will probably let them go. The pumpkin will be butternut as that is what we tend to buy, but not sure about the tomato so will just have to wait and see.
