Yesterday was garlic planting day. It's about a month late but for heaven sakes it was also 70* and sunny. Today will be even warmer. These unseasonable warm days are beautiful - and I'm getting a lot done - but holy tomatoes!
You can read more about planting garlic here. I still can't believe it works but I'm excited for the results. Last year I did not get a lot of garlic planted and most of what came up was inadvertently planted. This year was much more purposeful.
The cloves were huge!
I got some garlic for planting a couple weeks ago when I drove around in Amish country - for a fair price. I just didn't expect it to be so huge. I have high hopes for garlic next summer.
Today is going to be about leaves. I have a billion leaves and my goal is to get them all for mulch to improve my bad soil. My other task is to finish up prepping the Turkey House to move the first group of meat chickens over there. They need more space and a yard to keep their creepy meat chicken rampage under control. I might even try and funnel them into one of the cleared off gardens so they can poop it all up and fertilize it for next year's season.
Happy Wednesday everyone! I mighta glossed over that whole smoldering rodent thing. I'll tell you about it some time. Ew!
Is anyone else still planting?
