a place for the leeks at last

I have taken up all the potatoes from that bed.  It started to rain while I was doing it, and it was amazing how quickly I was covered in mud, where all was dust dry a few minutes ago.
I got a full bucket of potatoes out of it, all nice and clean, with only a bit of scabbing on some and a little damage from the fork.  It seem to be a law of nature that your fork has to go through the biggest one.

There is a bed free now for the leeks.  They have been waiting so long that they are actually pencil thick, like the books say.

I've been swotting up on what can go in now, lettuce, pak choi, spring cabbage (or Hispi which should work all year round), corn salad, radish.
