WHITE LEEK - MY SECRETS
Five years ago, I did not hear at all that such a leek existed. Today it is my favorite culture.
Delicate and sweet in taste, leek is especially good in winter salads.
I will not say that it is easy to grow it, in comparison with garlic and onions, he has to pay more attention. But he's worth it.
I grow leeks only through seedlings, I sow seeds in March. In May, I dig deep into the bed and bring in the ashes: the leek does not like acidic soils.
Then I make two deep grooves on it.
And in the grooves with a thick stick, which I hammer into the ground with a hammer to a depth of 10 cm, there are holes in which I plant seedlings at a distance of 20 cm from each other. I water the holes immediately, the water immediately tightens them with earth.
When the formation of the fan begins, I proceed to hilling the leek. I do this five times over the summer, because the most valuable thing in a leek is a bleached leg.
I dig up part of the crop with roots and store it in the barn, and leave the second in the garden until April. Before the frosts come, I spud the leek one more time.
