Leeks, Spring Onion n Taters
It's Autumn and time to make stew... the cooler weather is the perfect time to make chunky vegetable soup! I love my big pot grown leeks and spring onions; I've been putting off using them as I like to see them growing outside the back door. My wheelbarrow grown potatoes had some scabs but are still edible (just don't look pretty)! I didn't get a very large potato crop this year however I'm still saving quite a bit of money growing veg - even with my modest yields.
