I really like the Carvaggio's Ax.

Guess we have to at least occasionally talk about photography and gerdening so the new mods dont shut the corner down.

Jeff,

The bulbs you sent me, and subsequently planted in Daughters garden, some -;)--are going wild!--She told me yesterday --"One is 5 ft Tall!--I was at a loss, as to what type??(And that is a Technical Question to one who knows garlic, best--Jeff!.)

'Dilldeling About--:)--as usual found my Tri-Stone sharpener (pics later)--and Sandviks, cleaned up, --wood carving hit me after the garden-;):)

Dont worry though I will be planting Garlic again this fall and will probably be back to starting my own tomatoes and peppers by next season. Just needed a break with everything else going on.


Jeff:)

If anything , I can offer just let me know--Ax.--Serious.

5 ft tall really is something must be really good soil. Did she plant-em in the compost or manure pile?:D

Mine in good years get about 2 to 3 ft and lots of leaves. Start checking them around the first of June you can carefully dig down and inspect the bulbs for size if they are still small and not done yet just cover back in with dirt. After leaves start to die start checking weekly. Better to pull em a bit early than leave them too long and loose them to rot especially in wet weather.

The back part of the lot was unspoiled woodland, SIL plowed it up and planted--I'm amazed at the whole garden. He kept notes on what garlic was where and have prompted Daughter to review/identify.
