This spring I was surprised to find some volunteer garlic growing happily in last year's bed. I thought I'd got it all last summer, but obviously I missed a few cloves. I'll leave the other bed for a few more weeks, but I pulled these this morning to make room for some fall chard I want to sow. These seem mostly to be one or two giant cloves per bulb. Sadly, I lost my detailed list of all the garlic varieties I planted the year before last, so I don't know what varieties I have.
Things are busy here. I am in an ongoing war with weeds, and don't seem to be winning the battle. I've been burning roots and branches in the side pasture this morning, just a very small contained fire.
We had frost on Friday morning. My pathetic little bean plants died once and for all...no great loss as they were struggling big time to get going. The top leaves of the potatoes got some frost damage too, but they will be okay. Gardening at 3800 ft can be challenging; we can have frost any month of the year, although we're usually okay from early June to mid August.
Mike was home for a couple of days, and will be back for a week in a few days. Cody is staying here with me this week.
Buck's leg is coming along slowly but surely...I am still dressing it every day or two. He is well and comfortable.
