Garlic harvest

They're not big corms by any stretch of the imagination but considering the tlc they may or may not have enjoyed then I'm more than pleased with the results.

I'll leave them in a shady spot until the stems and leaves have dried out, plait them and store them in the shed.

I'll save the largest corm or two for next years crop and with better preparation, now that I'm feeling so much better, then I'm sure to have a better crop next year.

Everything else that I've planted is growing like mad but like most of the rest of us we're desperate for some rain.

Been starting to harvest a few things, there's lettuce a plenty, a few beans, rocket, parsley's producing well. Tomatoes are growing rapidly and setting fruit though none are ripe at this stage.

A few ideas on soil preparation I'd read about and decided to try seem to be working well and I promise to get a post up about that because it has been well worth the effort. Nothing fancy just a good recipe that has been delivering good results.

Anyway that's enough rabbiting on from me so until next time, it cheers from me.

Cheers

Stewart.
