Fortunately for me that was not the case and all my garlic has come through with flying colours, all 3 varities!
Taken from the 14th November 2008.......Two visits to the Lotty today - One before work - where I carefully transplanted over 80 onions -
Half White and Half Red
I then returned and lunchtime and had to search for the garlic.
I had planted 3 varieties, but because they hadn't quite surfaced yet, it was hard to find them.
Luckily, once I have found one, the other seemed to follow as I used my outstretched hand as a "how far apart" guide!!
I managed to find them all, and only damaged two cloves - I found it amazing that the roots were so long! One of them had roots of at least 3 inches!
After safely trans planting them all.....
Some of you will remember my eviction from plot 142 by my nasty neighbour! Ha - not defeated and I have loads of lovely garlic - must read up on how to plait them.
This is a picture of my hops which is climbing up the string well - it will soon be up to the fencing and providing some screening.
And these little cuties are my 2nd lot of Pak Choi that have replaced the delicious Spring Greens that Hubby & I have now devoured - mental note to self - grow lots of spring greens next year!
