Aren’t Those Leeks?

Nope, they are young garlic plants. Garlic and leeks are in the same plant family and at this time of year may look the same. Garlic grow from the cloves planted last fall  in the garlic field.

So in Potter County, here’s a take on that old Poem:

May showers bring local crops,
That is what they say.
But if all the raindrops turned to bulbs and hops,
We’d have quite a flavorful day!
