Gosh it has come round quick, it doesn't seem that long ago I planted the last lot.
This years Garlic
Pink Germidour broke into and planted 19 cloves
White Casablanca broke into and planted 26 cloves
The Elephant garlic from our own home grown that we have grown for a couple of years now, 1 bulb broken into 14 cloves.
if all goes well we will have 59 bulbs next year.
This year we harvested 51/2lb of garlic, so lets see what next year brings.
This is were they have gone, I added some of the spent mushroom compost to the bed, there is still some Yacon and Leeks in this bed, at the far end is the pointed greyhound cabbage that wont be ready until the spring.
I am going to get some white and red onions planted into the poly tunnel, I do find with the winter growing onions if its too wet they just don't grow, I tend to go for spring planted, I will do a spring planting of the brown onions in the rest of this bed.
This is the light working in the chicken house, being solar powered it runs down slowly over 4-5 hours on the brightest setting, as the charge runs out it dims giving them plenty of time to get on to perches, I switch it on about 5pm when I am doing the evening rounds.
I am just heading off to bed I was up at 4-30 this morning, getting an order finished that had to be delivered to a shop today, I now have one of those tired thick heads.
