The final produce

It’s been a long time coming, but we harvested our leek today.
Hubby planted six, and only two came to anything, one looking more like a spring onion.
Both went in the stew, which was totally delicious by the way.
Just a recap of our success stories this year:
cabbages, caulis, onions, tomatoes (still a good 2kg in the freezer), potato patch,
and today’s leeks
It’s been a good year.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Bumper crop. And so beautiful and fresh.

  2. I am duly impressed. I am pondering a garden for next year.

    • We’ve always had a good crop of onions and tomatoes. This year our green beans were a dead loss, but our cabbages and cauliflowers are definitely on the cards for next year. You can’t beat home grown for flavour.

    We are still able to harvest kale from the garden! The tomatoes were okay and the beans did pretty good. No peppers this year and Sparky is considering squash again for next year… Your one leek looks nice and big but I’m guessing the little one will taste just as good!!
