Our big news for Harvest Monday hosted by Daphe's Dandelions is garlic and leeks.
|Silver White. We sowed 1/4 pound and harvested 5 1/2 lbs!|
We planted a 1/2 pound of Aglio Roso (creole), for a harvest of 4 lb; 1/4 pound Khabar (marbled purple), for a harvest of just over 3 pounds; 1/4 Siberian (marbled purple), for a harvest of 2 1/2 pounds, 1/4 Silver White (silverskin), for a harvest of over 5 1/2 pounds; 1/4 lb St. Helens (silverskin) for a harvest of almost 4 pounds. We expected Silver White to be our best producer and it was. But we're not giving up on the creole and marbled purple varieties. We pickled some of them with our refrigerator pickles and they are delicious!
Just today we harvested 8 pounds and 9 ounces of Bleu de Solaize leeks. They seemed very early to us, but after reviewing our notes, they really aren't that early. We planted them very early. The seed pack says they take 110 days to maturity. We planted them indoors mid-February and outside on March 19. From the time we seeded them it's been at least 150 days! Anyway, they look great! some of them were at least an inch in diameter! We harvested 8 pounds 9 ounces. We're not sure how to store them. If you have experience with storing leeks please let us know what you do. Thanks!
