Lifting the last of the leeks

At Mounteagle Estate, Fearn, where I work on Thursday, I was asked to lift the last of the leeks today - no problem I said, do it after my lunchbeak.
So after my lunch, grabbed a fork and off to the veg patch - the fork just bounced off the top of the ground - as did the spade.
In the end, I did manage to lift the leeks - by pouring tap water onto the ground round about the plants then using a 4ft metal spike to get them up - I hope they enjoy them !!

  1. Hope they were worth the effort - I am sure they were.

    Was hoping dig my patch this week but it's been a no go so far!
