This is the last week for leeks and these leeks are the difficult to find Juane de Pitou yellowish leeks. They were rediscovered in a small village near Alsace, France where William Woys Weaver was hunting regional vegetables. They were very popular in the 18th century and thought to be another vegetable that disappeared, but a French seed shopkeeper and her neighbors would eat no other kind and so another vegetable preserved for the love of eating. So go ahead make yourself a bowl of foudue aux porreaux!
Speaking of heirloom vegetables, Leo and I are going to the Heirloom Vegetable Exposition in Santa Rosa next week. Anyone who wants me to add something to the farm, let me know. I hardly ever get to see a pile of seed vendors in one place. And I'm hunting the best vegetables. Have a great week.
