Leek Trenches Shifted

Donna Young @ 28 April 2010

Because I am a rookie leek grower and I do not know any better, I have shifted the trench walls over against the plants to blanch them. Maybe it was a good move, maybe it wasn't. The layer of mulch that I had spread became mixed with dirt in the process. That should be a good for the leeks, but remember, I am a rookie leek grower. I seem to remember reading that leeks like organic matter in their dirt. We'll see.

The leek bed is now flat. The hills from making the trenches are gone. In about a week or two, I will start hilling the dirt and mulch toward the leeks.
