Leek

The Leeke hath his time of lustinesse and youth, and his time also of age, even as a man hath. For the first yeare it bestoweth all care and travell in growth and nourishment to his owne perfection and ripening: then the next yeare following, that that he can he reserveth and bestoweth upon seede, to the preservation of his kinde.
