Importing foreign foodstuffs doesn't go down too well with their Border Control bods.

Re: Early Winter Bits and Bobs.

Huge smile. I just pulled a mahoosive leek, this year is the first time I grew leeks. A few early ones I pulled were lovely but these mahoosive ones appear to have forgotten they are leeks and-so present Solid mass of leek rather than, erm, like An onion.

Your thoughts please.
