Posts Tagged ‘leek soup’

Leeks are still at their seasonal best in February.  If you are lucky enough to still have some in your garden try harvesting a few for our fabulously tasty, cheeky leeky soup. 

 

If not you will find lots in the supermarket, and because they are in season they will be well priced and hopefully from a local supplier.

Growing your own vegetables is fun and there is nothing better than the taste of something you have grown yourself.  …And with the trip from plot to plate taking no time at all, you get to enjoy the full flavour and nutritional goodness of every mouthful!  For lots of gardening goodies – raised beds to compost bins, patio gros to potato bags take a look at www.recycleworks.co.uk.
