Leeks & Celery

I harvested these lovelies today in the October sunshine and made a vegetable stock with the upper leek leaves and the outer celery stalks. I then made an amazing soup with roasted leeks, potatoes and a garden acorn squash ... some carrots too, not to mention the delicious wisdom of fresh sage. I adapted this "recipe," using what I had on hand. It was a perfect meal to close this perfect autumn day.

Oh WOW, that sounds wonderful! I can't believe you grew your own celery! I don't know if I could grow them in my zone... How great you are :)

This time of year makes me long for New England!! I'm a Florida native, yet have returned to my parents native New England to live at times by choice.
Our so pleased to have found this site (a Link from one of Grannie Annies')and have enjoyed reading the Blogs of these "Connecticut Ladies". I am also a writer,a Gardner, and a sister in Spirit.

Our vegi growing season is just getting started, yet our sandy soil leaves my major success to reside in container Gardening.

I will be soaking up all the info you have to offer here on this blogsite, and be sending many questions back to ya'll about working with herbs and weeds.

And Thank You also for encouraging me to get back to the Blog I started and left unattended!!

Much Love and Blessings to you all for all you do.

We've eaten all but a few onions from this season and almost all of our garlic and our leeks never seemed to take hold.I'm enjoying your blog. Thanks for your efforts.
