leek what the hell is it,is it like table onions?i never even heard of it till about year ago,is it winter crops?

The leek is a vegetable, a cultivar of Allium ampeloprasum, the broadleaf wild leek. The edible part of the plant is a bundle of leaf sheaths that is sometimes erroneously called a stem or stalk. The genus Allium also contains the onion, garlic, shallot, scallion, chive,[1] and Chinese onion.[2]

Historically, many scientific names were used for leeks, but they are now all treated as cultivars of A. ampeloprasum.[3] The name 'leek' developed from the Old English word leac.[4] Three closely related vegetables, elephant garlic, kurrat and Persian leek or Tareh, are also cultivars of A. ampeloprasum, although different in their uses as food.

Rather than forming a tight bulb like the onion, the leek produces a long cylinder of bundled leaf sheaths that are generally blanched by pushing soil around them (trenching). They are often sold as small seedlings in flats that are started off early in greenhouses, to be planted out as weather permits. Once established in the garden, leeks are hardy; many varieties can be left in the ground during the winter to be harvested as needed.

tell ya something else about onions,they are a bitch to start from seed and only way i have acomplished growing them is to crowd them into the starter pot,when they unfold they stand up better ,1 per container aint gonna do it,get about 3in tall fall over die,so i take them 2 inch square containers drop about 20 seeds in it let um grow to about 6 inch tall then drench the babies and peel gently apart and transplant to the big garden,go down there and pick a few for dinner love um,im gonna have to give the leek a try,i planted some colliflower and i swear they are cabbage plants hahahah and found out they need to be in seperate containers,i got 3 in a 20 gal pot and they are looking good,no heads but the center looks like it making a head of cabbage,hahahah,could be ,i am a old ass stoner lmao,brocille is about 3ft tall with big heads the size of soft balls,and it gonna frezze tonight,i put contracter bags over all but 1 ,want to see if it can handle the frezze

Lol yea, I didn't even really take it as political. I feel that even if you agree with his policies, most level headed adults will agree he says some dumb ass, immature shit! LMAO

Yeah, I said it with zero thought of politics. It didn't even occur to me. Everybody makes fun of dude. He was just who came to mind when everyone was talking about burnt heads, all I could think of was that giant tangerine melon with glow in the dark peepers.

When he says "controversial" things I've heard his supporters say sh*t like, "That's our Donald", or just laugh along with everyone else. The guy is a character, no doubt entertaining. That was my angle and had no intention of offending anyone. Sorry if I did.
