2015 Garlic Crop

Yesterday was a lovely autumnal day so I planted this years garlic crop. I have doubled the amount planted this year and plan to double the crop size every year so with the power of compounding we should be able to have a commercial crop in a few years of garlic selected for vigour in our particular location.

The raised beds makes planting garlic a wonderfully relaxing and therapeutic process. The width and height (1200 x 2400 x ~600) of the beds make it easy to reach the middle from either side while sitting comfortably on the border which is great for dodgy knees and backs and having an ale in the afternoon. The variety is Red Russian Rocambole a hard neck variety.

In the background you can see the rhubarb and horseradish are going nuts.

Cheers
