About leeks: "On St. David's day, put leeks in your hat!"

HOW TO GROW LEEKS FROM SOWING TO HARVEST

'Leeks are a hardy, no-fuss plant that can be seeded outdoors about the time of the last spring frost, though they will survive light frosts even when young—and heavy frosts in the fall. Find out how to grow leeks every step of the way: from sowing and transplanting to harvesting.

If you’ve. never had leeks, they’re a more mild onion that have a sweeter flavor that regular onions. In recipes, leeks may be substituted for onions and, unlike onions, can be chopped and frozen for use in the winter after you run out of your own onions. You eat the white part of the leek, not the green tops.

Leeks can be harvested over a long period if you choose the right mix of varieties. Varieties described as early-season leeks will be ready in time for autumn, while mid and late-season leeks can be harvested through the winter and into spring.'>>>

1. And if you let them go to seed

they make beautiful flowers that look like onion domes on mosques. Then the seeds replant themselves.
