I dug up my garlic last Sunday. Now that I know I can grow the stuff, I am going to plant a lot of it in September. I ended up with 32. I'd like at least twice that many next year. Erica of Northwest Edible Life posted a picture of her massive garlic. It's called Music. I found some online at Boundary Garlic. I'd like to find some **local, but if I don't....
I've planted a flat of Swiss Chard. A small flat of nine. I haven't tasted chard, so I'll just try a bit. They came up really quickly. Today, I have my first ever bean flower. It was a cold day. Coat weather cold. I closed up the greenhouse for the day. Murphy's law. Suddenly the sun has come out, and the greenhouse vent is open. Need to go open it back up.
**Update: I could not find Music Garlic locally. I got in touch with Boundary Garlic about how to best order from them to make sure I could get it. She said it was going on sale online on the 15th. So just after noon, I went online and they were sold out. I found a company called Botanus in BC. They had some available. I've ordered 6!!
