I noticed that the garlic seed plants from last year had re sprouted
The ones I had potted up for the market,
They died down, disappeared over summer.
Several times I nearly reclaimed the dirt..........
.........thank goodness for labels!
Then I though OK if they have sprouted...
What has happened to the ones I parked in the paddock?
I am a bit shocked by the weeds, where have I been?
Where is the garlic?
There they are.
Now I have to be careful when I weed to reveal the garlic
the weeds blend so well.
Stella puppy is also a danger down here, nice sandy digging
She did dig one up
These 1 year old bulbils are now the size of a pickled onion and will be a guaranteed big clove
when replanted in fresh ground and left till December.
I will leave them where they are for now until I have prepared the new ground.
Garlic should be always planted in fresh ground.
We have a market free weekend coming up so there is a chance it might happen.
Yesterday I accidentally pulled up a freesia when weeding with gusto.
I hadn't realised they had come up.
I am still in summer mode, not spring bulbs.
Made me think that I really need to start planning for spring.
I have to confess I came inside and did an online bulb order while the thought was fresh in my mind.
Cheques in the mail.
I am excited.
