Garlic and Shallots
My garden is so confused. Not sure which season it is. With the lack of rain and the sunny days my plants have started to bolt a bit. This is the first year that I tried my hand at garlic and shallots. I ordered them back in September and planted in the late fall. They have really sprouted up after our last rain. So interesting the whole area smells like garlic, I did not think that the growing plants would have such a delicious odor. Can wait to harvest later this year.
My front garden is looking really beautiful as some of the brassicas have flowered because we can only eat so much broccoli, cauliflower, rapini and romanesco! They look lovely and taste yummy too.
In my keyhole bed I have a mixture of shallots, leeks and Welsh bunching onions. They are all loving this weather.
Artichoke is going gang-busters, after it all but died off last year.
Celery…slowly but surely.
Need to harvest some Spinach and Paris Island Cos Lettuce.
Brussels Sprouts…I wonder what these are going to do? That is why I love the garden so much always some new development that will surprise me and the boys.
Weeding this morning and pulled out a few baby carrots with a Dandelion. They were delicious. Getting ready to start some sprouts for our spring/summer garden.
