 The green part was a little tough. Could of been how I cooked them. But not so tough that they were unpleasant.
Sliced on the diagonal. Just under a centimetre long bits. Gently pan fried. No colour on them.

I find leek greens are usually a bit tough. Have you tried Elephant garlic greens yet?

No I haven’t tried elephant garlic. It’s something I’ve always want to try. Just never actually brought any. 
it’s on my new garden list. Also want to perfect growing normal garlic first. They very rarely split into cloves. Just little bulbs. Usable, but not right. This years are looking promising, though! fingers are crossed.

Looking promising for this year's Babington leek Bulbils. These 3 leeks have self seeded in a planter. They're 5-6' tall. 
How are yours doing?

I have been eating my elephant garlic scapes recently. I par-boiled them with some YS asparagus spears I procured. Similar size as asparagus spears and by boiling together it gave the asparagus a slight garlicky taste. Lovely when heavily salted and with a knob of butter added! Cool Quite pleasantly surprised as I though they may have been tough as auld boots! Rolleyes

I’ve harvested a couple of my babington leeks this year. Now they’re just yellowing and will die back soon. No sign of any bulbils. Guessing they’d like a real bed rather than a pot. But they do okay.

These are in a trough/planter. Not very deep so I don't think they're that fussy about what they're growing in.
