Goodness! Even green-thumbed Budge Street resident Eddie Brough was surprised when he harvested this whopping leek.

The vegetable is about 7.5 centimetres in diameter and spans almost a metre from its base to the top of its green leaves, looking more like some sort of tropical tree than a humble leek.

Mr Brough has an impressive garden, and even though he has dug over much of it for winter, it's still supplying him with vegetables.

He said he hadn't added anything special to the soil the leek grew in.

He said he would likely make a soup with the leek, adding in other vegetables such as carrots and silver beet from the healthy soil in his garden.

"I just walk around here clipping off a few things and go back in with an armful," he said of his soup-making method.

I'll bet that is the biggest leek he has had in a while. Grin
