A Potter County Treat

I am many mies from Potter County and many years removed from the days when I could climb the hills and dig leeks. This picture fills me with wonderful memories and deep longing for those bygone years. Looking at the picture, I can almost relive those years and my mouth waters, wishing it could enjoy again the taste of Spring in Potter County. Many thanks to Curt Weinhold for this picture, and to you, Jim, for publishing it.

These leeks were mailed to my son in Anchorage. His wife has never seen leeks & is anxious to try'em. Hmmmm!

Thats funny you posted that just today I was weed eating a trail to my spring.I live 2 miles south of Austin towards Costello when I kept smelling leeks.Come to find out I have two nice patches growing on the hill less than 75 yards from my house.Needless to say I dug a bunch up took them to my hose and cleaned them.Grabbed a salt shaker and had a nice little snack and spent a nice day away from the woman and kids because they couldn't handle the smell.lol I've been living here for almost ten years and had no idea I had them growing that close.Nice Suprise!Gotta love Potter County!

Poster 4:46-
I bet if you left an address or email address you could find a kind soul or two or twenty on here that would send you a couple of bunches. I would!!!!
Just like leeks are a treasure, so are the people that live here in God's Country!

Yum! Me likes my leeks! LOL. Nice picture - think I'll have to dig up a few now. :-) Thanks for posting, Jim.

Curt can make a beautiful picture out of leeks! Thanks for showing his work frequently. You could lead with it every day and I would be happy.

My husband has his Lyman Lake picture (with colored leaves and snow) as his screen saver.

I so appreciate Solomon's Words.

When we went to school (back in the day) if you ate leeks & came to school, you would be sent home because the 'aroma' was too offensive & too much of a distraction to classwork. There probably isn't many "older" male Potter County natives that didn't get at least one spring day home free after a snack of leeks.

I would rather smell dog poop then the stinking smell of leeks! Enjoy ppl, just stay away from everyone for about a week.

To poster 3:46 PM. How sad for you to always be negative and mean. I am sorry for you that your life is so unhappy that you can only find mean, negative things to say. How wonderful that the other posters found happiness, good thoughts and pleasant memories! What ever is so wrong in your life, I hope it soon turns around.... for your sake.

Reading closely, the person wrote "I would rather smell dog poop then the stinking smell of leeks!".

They used "then" rather than "than". So they would like to smell dog poop first, then next they would like to smell leeks.
