We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Clean Up

I am starting to clean up the raised beds. I added bags of wholly cow to 2 beds today and they are ready for the garlic cloves which I will plant in November. I will do another bed this week and hopefully will finish up by the first week in October. I love how the freshly prepared beds look. I did leave the basil plants though. They are taking off for a second growth spurt since I harvested my massive basil harvest a few weeks ago.

  1. We are getting ready to plant our garlic too. But much less as we have too many gardens This year we had 3,000 garlic plants and are cutting back big time. I just want raised beds.

    Thank you for visiting my Journal (sweet comments).

  2. Hi Lori, I love your journal and look forward to reading it everyday. It is hard to imagine harvesting 3000 garlic plants. That is a big harvest. I will be planted only one 4 x8 foot raised bed of garlic. Best Essex that will be around 40 plants. It is enough garlic for the year when harvested.
