I read (and love) Tootsie’s blog but I’ve never participated in Fertilizer Friday before so I’m the new (albeit old) kid in town. I am not fortunate enough to live in a sunny house so I have to dig into my photos from last season.
Do you recognize this?
Notice on the lower right that a second bloom is bursting from it’s papery covering.
I now know why leeks are so expensive. These were planted in the spring of 2008 and over wintered in the garden into 2009. I had no idea they would take so long to grow! Oy....patience is a virtue.
So in addition to the scrumptious Potato Leek Soup that was made, a bouquet was born! Waste not, want not.
That is my contribution to Fertilizer Friday for this week. I would love to be contributing something that is “live ‘n kicking” but that is still months away. Visit Tootsie’s blog where there are sure to be plenty.
P.S. I am renovating my blog so please bear with me.
