Now, of course the big news is the weather.
Sorry for scant news from this desk, but anyone growing garlic commercially was AWOL from their normal routines for the last couple of weeks, including me – the only time that anything to do with garlic is time-sensitive and the work days crowded – very crowded. The process is interesting because you finally get to see your crop – hidden from view for 10 months since you planted it. Now is when you find how new varieties worked, which areas of your field need more compost for next year etc. And it pretty well all has to come off within a few days. But we’re done.
