Time for leeks again.


Some of the leeks have been looking a decent eating size for a week or two now, so today we dug a couple up for dinner.


The thing I love about growing my own is the indescribable freshness. These babies were so crisp and juicy. With homegrown leeks you can use every bit of the leaf - right to the end.



James makes sure they are nice and clean.


And straight into the pot to make a wonderful risotto with rosemary and butternut squash.
