  2. To all those cooks who hate using leeks because of the sand which gets in the stem, between the leaves. Chop the leeks or slice them to the size you need, toss them into sieve and run water over them or if extra dirty, into a pail or basin of water and swish to your hearts' content. The leaves will all separate and the sand or dirt will sink to the bottom. Then pour the leaks into a strainer or sieve. Dump the mud out and repeat if necessary. Voila! clean and 'easy peezy'. No work to that at all! Enjoy all!

  5. +Home Grown Veg great video im going to try it now do you ever use nettles that have brewed in water to feed them?. Stinks to high heaven but its helped a lot of things in my garden grow well

  6. Your homemade innovations are so useful, I'll be using this one with my Morrisons flower buckets. I've already used the pre-germinated parsnip & table leg trick (used a wooden rolling pin). Thanks for sharing.

  7. ridge method plant on top of mounds in 3 inch wide holes 6 inches deep just drop leek in hole and water in this is the method i was learnt on an organic veg farm works great on wetter ground

  8. Not exactly sure what leeks are, but I want to grow them now! lol My 'green thumbs' are getting itchy after watching all these gardening videos…hahaha Right now I've got red, yellow and green bell peppers, tomatoes, spinach, scallions, sweet onions, kale, peas, 2 types of basil, lemon thyme, raddish, carrots and parsley growing in pots. I doubt that I will get any carrots…never had any luck with them, but the tops are so pretty that I grow them anyways. I love being able to cut fresh, home grown herbs to use whilst cooking. I just love playing in the dirt, experimenting with different vegetables. It's like my version of going to church…I feel closer to Nature whilst gardening. Thanks for sharing. I am really enjoying your videos! Peace and well wishes from Florida. =D
