No I don’t need a plumber! 😊

And I realise this might not be seen as a gardening problem, but I thought it might possibly be in the future so please bear with me. 

I bought some keeks today as I don’t grow them at the moment. 
When I cut into one of them, the middle was pink and very squishy. It looked disgusting!

Is this a common problem with leeks and if so, how do you avoid it when growing them?

If you’ve got this far, thank you!
