Alright, I admit it…I have failed! I planted leeks directly in the soil this year and they did absolutely NOTHING…they grew these sad little chive like stems and they have stayed exactly like that all season long. I have reviewed the watering schedule, the soil composition and depth and I just don’t have a good answer as to why these did not grow.
As I have said before, while success is awesome and yummy in the garden, failure is a good way to learn new things or be reminding of things we should have learned before. I am searching for the lessons in my leek disaster, but I have yet to figure it out.
So much for my plans of Vichyssoise this fall 🙁
Sad Gardener….but happy gardening!
