Planting garlic at jacican


Some days at the moment the sun is shining and even though it's cool, you can still get outside and do some gardening. Somewhere I heard that garlic has to be planted before the winter solstice, so outside I am on a fine day making sure that happens. Garlic is one thing that I plant every year under and around the cherry, peach and apricot trees as companion plants. Each year when I pull out the crop, I invariably miss a couple of bulbs, so I like to keep it contained to the same garden bed for that reason.

This year I have sown eleven varieties of Diggers seeds garlic

Pictured is a bulb called "Dynamite" - one of the largest and hottest garlics in the collection. It was very easy to plant: make a whole with your fingers; stick in a clove, root end first, and cover with dirt. Done!

Seaboard helping in the garden

Just remember thourgh, that one of the most important things to do while you are gardening is to throw the ball for the helper, so keep repeating this as you go along.

Now I just have to wait until November for the garlic to flower and be ready for harvest and drying. Then there's garlic for the restaurant for another year... if the helper doesn't dig it all up.
