I set my leeks into my garden using a newly made dibble, close to the size and shape of the seedlings from the multi-pack. The dibble certainly made the transplanting much easier, push it into the ground and you have a perfectly shaped hole to place the young seedling in.
This dibble is the first single one that I have tried . I have a couple of multi-dibbles that I have used for years. https://mygardenmychickens.wordpress.com/2013/04/18/pictures/
I set my leek seedlings in a dug out boxed area or place an open bottomed box over them. The sides are about 6 inches high. As the leeks grow I add compost around them till the compost is level with the top of the box. This will give me a 6- 8 inch white leek at harvest time.
Mother nature sometimes helps with the plant selection for the garden. I planted New Zealand spinach 4 years ago and have not planted it since. But, every year since then I have New Zealand spinach growing in my garden. I just have to find where the small seedlings are growing and transplant them to where I want them . I thought this year I wasn’t getting any but I found some seedlings growing in with the garlic. When they get a little bigger, I will move 3 or 4 to their rightful spot.
Also this year Mother nature selected 6 Russian Red Kale plants and 4 dill plants to be part of the garden. The kale was a surprise, mostly because I had decided not to plant any of the Russian this year. Not wanting to piss-off Mother nature, I found them a spot, well 6 spots. The dill was gratefully received since the dill I planted didn’t grow at all.
My rhubarb is very happy this year. Bigger, taller, thicker, fuller and just lush.
One last item in the garden. Actually there are 2 of them, I only got a picture of the smaller one.
