relocating leeks

last summer our neighbor gave us some of his extra leek seedlings---it was late in the season and they were a bit stunted from being held in a flat so long so they didn't grow much over the summer.  they're looking pretty good now.  i recently read a blog post by larry hodgson about growing leeks as perennials (because they are) instead of replanting every year as is commonly done and i was inspired to give it a try.  today i dug most of the leeks out of the kitchen garden and gave them some more space in the orchard garden in an unoccupied section of the perennial onions bed.

we'll see how they do.
