Eeks! Plant Leeks! (and Riverview Potato Leek Soup: for Home Cooks)
Last week we celebrated St Patrick’s Day with our annual planting of the peas. This week it is time to celebrate another St Patrick’s tradition: planting leeks. I had always associated leeks with the Welsh, and was surprised to discover that the Irish bestowed St. Paddy with a very important link to these delectable members of the onion family.
