Time to Plant the Garlic!

Kricklewood Farm GarlicIt’s time to plant the garlic and this is the first year I was doing it in shorts and a t-shirt! It was about 22 C today, normally I’m planting when it’s closer to 5 or 10 C. We ended up with 4 20 foot rows so should have about 250 bulbs next summer, same as this past year. Emma and Jeff (the barn cat) weren’t much help and Emma’s tail almost got planted with the garlic. One of the chickens was very interested in what was going on in the garden, the goats watched from a distance and the baby ducks were very happy with the old zucchini I tossed to them in the barnyard. All in all, a very good day! More photos…
