A reminder to plant garlic and other edible perennials—plus a batty fact.
Here I tend to get my garlic in the ground at the beginning of October, while the soil is still warm. But I do agree on autumn planting - so much better than in spring, though I do have to use very Hardy varieties to withstand our wet, clay soil. I hope your grows as well as mine seems to be doing!
Interesting about bats!
LOVE this post :) Your little porch is so cute. We also have a tiny garden but manage to pack things in. We just planted asparagus in a raised bed. To our joy and surprise it's coming up, (although we realise it will be at least another two years before we can consume it!) I've always planted garlic at this time of year after being taught how to do it by a very forward thinking primary teacher. As it happens, I'm just finishing a post about the wonders of fermenting the bulbs, so I see that great minds think alike :) (Note to self to try the horse radish!) Beautiful post, I thoroughly enjoyed the read x
I planted garlic for the first time this year! As well as onion starts, and some lovely native perennials: native anemone, California Lilac, currants, and huckleberries. I may get another order of them in at the beginning of December, if finances allow.
