I caught my son taking a leek in the backyard.
How embarrassing for the neighbors.
Actually he had permission and it was a leek, not a leak. Shooo. Awkwardness avoided.
That is about the hand size limit of leeks for a 5 year old.
As leeks mature you can pull soil or mulch up around the the plants to produce a longer blanched stem. I didnt do that this year.
He might have gotten the leek part right, but when I asked him to water the garden I am sure this wasn’t what I had in mind.
Though, it is 105 outside. Why not? Maybe I will join them.
