Seven braids of home grown garlic - might JUST get us through the year. We eat a lot of garlic
big my bulbs are. Might have to take another photo to show you all. I have saved the best and biggest bulbs for this years planting, Anyway I am stoaked with the size of the bulbs and how much garlic I got. A garden success always makes one feel great doesn't it.
I always plant my garlic in May well before the recommended time of the shortest day - and usually harvest around the longest day, before all of the leaves have turned brown.
My stalks look brown as I've left them in the sun to start the drying out stage.
Stella the Poodle...
Stella loves going in the car - she has to wear a seat belt for her safety. This is her third seat belt as she has out grown the other two. James is walking Stella and Mack - Abbey has crashed. It's kinda getting hard to stay positive when we think we have beaten everything for her to hit a rough patch of being sore and extremely tired again.
Kirkaldies and Stains. Both kids have commented on his pink blanket, he arrived with a red blanket in his bag too. I will swap them over tomorrow.
On arrival, Leo walked out of his carry cage totally relaxed to be here.
Don't you just adore his smile I captured with the camera?
I'm putting up todays post before I go to bed as Leo's family I'm sure will be pleased to go to bed knowing he is well settled.
View from my kitchen window. It's wonderful not having neighbours - I don't know if I could go back to having them... Minka and I were calling out to each other while I was doing the dishes this morning. Imagine if we had close neighbours they would think I was bonkers...
