I've been silent for several weeks now and have only come up for air now that our house move is nearly complete. So the garden and blogging have been neglected but as the pile of boxes shrinks I've been able to get out on the plot and begin the end of season tidy up.
But it's also a time for planting and this picture is just some of the garlic sent to me by Patrick at Bifurcated Carrots.
Thirteen varieties in all it will be interesting to see how they do on the allotment and also in the vegetable plot at the new house (I'll post seperately on this). Maybe later next year the recepients of Patrick's generosity would post their experience with the different varieties and we can see what does best, where and possibly guess at why?
