I've always had a garden. I enjoy a challenge! I love the rewards when it all comes together. And I learn something new nearly every day. Perfect 🌻

Garlic cloves sprouting. Row on the left were planted with their tips showing. Row on the right had a light covering of soil. This row germinated first but the other row has now caught up. I reckon it doesn’t really make any difference how you plant them 👩‍🌾

I've given up with garlic. Grown it twice. Twice been disappointed. Shame as I cook with it all the time

Thanks all. I ended up last year with lovely foliage which died down but only yielded bigger cloves -hadn’t formed into bulbs. I think the Rose garlic grew from cloves left in from last year! This year’s are the white ones and I’ve only pulled one so far. But 🤞🏻 they look good. @charlotte @jaynehynesburton @kimmy01 @gardengirlla

The harvest is in! Don’t know what happened to these as they started off so well. But only one has produced a proper bulb. But according to Google you can eat the others too 😃

Garlic progress update. Cloves still growing well including the little one at the back of the photo I rescued from the salad drawer a week ago and stuck in the soil!
