Elephant Garlic planting

Every time I went into the lean to I’d go “oh God I need to plant the garlic… Well finally I got round to it with a little help from Sam.

Elephant Garlic is much bigger. Each clove is the size of a small standard garlic.

The first garlic was given to us four years ago by our neighbour and generally it’s done well, but never actually splits into cloves. This year’s was given to us again by our neighbour and planted far too late again!

Plant about 1″ below the surface

Help optional.

chickens on garden furniture

The advantage of it being winter now is that we can let the chickens freerange.  This means the rhubarb is gone.  Completely.  They really like rhubarb.

Next to go is the comfrey (my bocking 14 variety) which is in the process of being decimated.

Apparently even the garden furniture is fair game (as below).
