Left leeks in ground over winter
I left some of my leeks in the ground overwinter. Some are forming seed heads. 1) Should I pinch them? My leeks did not get as big as in the grocer store. I use them mostly for broth so I would feel OK harvesting them and freezing them. 2) But should I just leave them in the ground and harvest as needed this season? Also,, some of the leeks formed what looks like clumps of grass. 3) Can I separate them and plant them the same as leek seedlings?

You need to pinch off the seed heads and then harvest the leeks.They don't stay nice after they go to seed. I think you can plant the seedlings. It's an experiment and if it works out, you'll know for the future.
