I know it has been a long time since my last post, but I do have updates. The garlic harvest was pretty good this year, the bulbs were not as large as other years, but we still have enough garlic stored for a year. A few weeks ago I planted a 4 x 6 foot bed with a new round of garlic. So far I have found that Music seems to be what I should stick with, so the entire bed is that.
I also cleaned out the beds and compost and manure has been added since my raised beds seem to loose soil and compost over time. Trying to find compost/ manure is a bit of a challenge in the city. I have to call around for it. I would love to find a good reliable source where I could buy it by the cubic yard.
The basil and tomatoes did well and my experiment with corn was not worth the real estate that I used. Every year I like to try something new and I had not planted corn in 35 years. It just did not produce. So next year I want to try a winter squash that is reasonably resistant to insects. That may be a challenge.
