Well, it's not really sacrificial of course. This is the one bulb that Lloyd was willing to give up of "the very special garlic". It has kept amazingly well and we've been rationing it. There are 2 bulbs left for eating.
I split the bulb - the cloves were huge - and planted it out this morning. There were 12 cloves so keep your fingers crossed they all do well and we can keep this garlic going for another 5 years.
After I'd planted them out I finished off the last bit of weeding that I was too tired to do yesterday - the chilli garden. Now that that's done the veggie garden is back in a state I can cope with without having a nervous breakdown every time I look at it!
While I was planting and weeding, Lloyd was picking more chillis, I can't believe they are still going so well, it's so late in the season, I mean it's pretty much winter.
This is one of my wild flower pots I planted out in the veggie garden to attract bees and look pretty - the seeds were all free because we gathered them up from last years wild flowers. Both pots are doing really well and seem to have a good mix in them.
One rather sorry looking cauliflower. They have been attacked mercilessly by cabbage white caterpillars. Which is a shame - I had a look at them this morning and couldn't see any actual caterpillars, but I know they're hiding in there somewhere.
Spring onions - we always have some of these in the garden, they grow all year round here, which is a real bonus.
Finally a rather boring photo of part of the veggie garden as it is now that I've weeded, cleared, cleaned and polished! We only have a small amount of winter veggies in this year, there is one big bed of broad beans which is looking very huge and leafy, but there's hardly any beans on the plants !
I know this looks like nothing much, but I'm really pleased with it!
