Bean yesterday - garlic tomorrow.


I had lots of help clearing the bean bed today.


James really worked hard and we had a great time. He put his new (to him) trike and trailer to a lot of use.
He loved helping to fill the wheel barrow with mulch.

And now we have a beautiful bed ready to plant our garlic as soon as it arrives. Once again I have ordered from The Really Garlicky Company. I was so pleased with my harvest this year - definitely the best I have had. The bulbs are strong with nice fat cloves and they taste great. I have sent away for 40 bulbs this year, so should get around 150 cloves from that.
I love gardening - there is always something new to look forward to. With 3 of us now working the plot who knows what we can achieve next season!

  1. Interesting to read about your garlic. I've always ordered mine from the big English seed catalogues. Last year the crop failed completely. Now seeing your recommendation I might give the Really Garlicky Company a go - apart from anything they're only a few miles from where I grew up.
