The serious test plot.

Posted in Uncategorized on May 8th, 2009 by admin – Comments Off

This plot has fifty-one test varieties of porcelain, marbled purple stripe, purple stripe, and glazed purple stripe. It is the first year that I have grown these, given to me by Cannon Falls Joel. I feel there is pressure to make sure that they all survive and are taken care of like a real scientist would. Thank goodness they all came up this spring otherwise I’d have to admit to Joel that I have failed the job already. It is a happy feeling one gets…like a mother seeing all the wee ones growing so strong, each garlic having it’s own look and characteristic.

What a couple of weeks does.

These little beauties have grown so much. They are much stronger than they were in the last posting. Walking through the garden it is easy to see how different each variety is, even at this height.  I am hoping that we get some rain as this is when it’s needed. May 3, 09 more garlic
