Garlic Charm

Garlic behind the rabbit defences.

This spell of Mediterranean weather will certainly help the garlic and onions. The ground is still quite damp from the recent rains and I expect to see a substantial growth in the onion bulbs over the course of this week. Perfect weather for growth.

The foliage of my autumn planted garlic is starting to turn yellow. Another week and it will be time to start lifting the bulbs and drying them for winter use. Somewhat surprisingly I find that garlic cloves freeze well. The garlic slicer is prepped and awaits its first victim of the year. Salut Madame Guillotine!
