pod one out: I must be one of the few people who don't like eating peas raw from the pod. My mum used to take advantage of this fact when it came to pea-podding - she always got me to do it because she knew there would be plenty left to be enjoyed by the whole family. The plants are coming out now, untangled from their twiggy pea sticks, which will do a second tour of duty, propping up cornflowers and calendulas.
There is a big pot full of leeks - our favourite winter vegetable. The seedlings are bustling for space so it's time to plant them out where the peas and lettuce were. Planting leeks is good fun - separating the seedlings, trimming roots and tops so they can be dropped into six-to eight-inch deep holes with only the top of their leaves peeping out.
There's no need to firm in - a thorough soak will settle them in.
