|Russian/ Elephant garlic|
Planting out those Russian garlic bulbs with grand hopes for a bumper harvest in the spring/summer. My hand is not a big one but these are also known as Elephant Garlic and are rather impressive. I want to try one in some cooking but I only bought two (why?) so I've planted both. It is also apparently the time for planting root crops according to moon phase planting. I don't know.
|Pumpkins still growing|
Kind of hoping and wishing that the pumpkins just stop trying to grow any more fruit. I have enough ripening on the vines and these won't make it to a stage that is worthwhile except as animal feed. Which I suppose is worthwhile in itself. Ok, keep growing pumpkins.
And I have a pest. I don't know if it is a bird or rabbit or possum or what that is taking bites out of my cabbages and other plants. I'll put some blood and bone out to deter the rabbits and possums and if it keeps happening, I'll put out something shiny to scare off the birds. If that fails, I'll tear my hair out and give up.
Gotta get my bed made so I can lie in it. It's fresh off the line sheets today. Yay!
