Thanks everyone for the leeks info. James' analogy with the peppers
makes sense. I may try them next year. Sage, I've never had or tried
miso, never seen it in the stores either. I scout the international

like I would like it. So, if I start them from seed, and being in a
short day area, when should I start them?
