New Greenery

It’s been so very cold here recently that there isn’t much activity on the plot yet.

The only crop I’ve planted is some garlic.  I’ve read you’re supposed to plant them on the shortest day of the year but I didn’t put my cloves in the ground until mid-February, hopefully that won’t make too much difference.  With the wet and cold weather we’ve had I really didn’t expect them to do anything but I had a pleasant surprise when I visited the allotment at the weekend.  First new plant to grow on the allotment this year!


I didn’t grow garlic last year so it’ll be interesting to see how well it does.  I nearly bought elephant garlic at the garden centre because giant garlic sounds fun, so if this is a success I know what I’ll be trying next year!
