At the weekend I harvested some leek and found some carrots hiding amongst some plants. They went into a chicken curry casserole. The leeks have been in the ground for about a year and they were quite small but still tasty. None of the leeks have started flowering so I'm still harvesting.

|Above: A veg box cleared and then covered to warm up the soil. On the far right side I've left celery in the soil. I removed some celery and it was really well rooted. I read somewhere it will act as a perennial - does anyone know if this is true?|
Variety: Celery, Plant Hart's Seeds, US. Sown indoor 8 April 2012/planted outside June.
The weather has been better for gardening / sunshine is welcome.
