Kitchen Tip: Leeks (and Green Onions)


Many of you may know that you can snip off the ends of green onions and replant those roots and they'll regrow, but did you know that leeks can do this too?
Above is store-bought leeks that I re-planted and I just replanted those roots. 
Two weeks ago, I cut my own leeks that had made it through our mild winter and now they're about 3 inches high with new lovely green tops!

A narrow escape from the compost bucket!

We often joke about the Israelites and how we can understand them now :)
