Out of the Garden Today – August 21, 2014

LeeksCut

The smell of a leek, pulled out of the ground just a few minutes before chopping, is intense. And since I have the whole leek to work with, not just the parts the grocer thought I should have, I can play with the long leaves. Draped over the kitchen sink, they look like the tentacles of a sea creature crawling out of the deep, in search of prey.
