first leeks

Did some weeding.  That bittercress stuff sure is a pretty successful weed, with nasturtiums running a close second.  

Sorted out some of the old wood and twigs and put them under cover to dry out a little for the great burn up.


 Pulled the first leeks of the season. They have really grown well, I think this must be the earliest picking ever. I noticed the start of rust on my young leeks just a few weeks ago, so I took off the affected leaves, gave a dose of potash, and just in case sprayed with an anti-fungal.  So far no sign of rust returning.



There are still plenty of flowers and still bees, both bumble and honey, there to harvest the nectar


Loads of seed heads on the nigella.
