Garlic finally appears

I planted this garlic ( Garlic Printanor )in late October and thought it would never appear. I bought it online from The Organic Gardening Catalogue. I have some planted in the herb spiral and the rest i in pots around the patio. As always they are planted possibly too close together but when you have limited space it’s hard not to try and cram them in, besides bulbs are supposed to grow close together to keep each other company. I have tried these this year as normally I just get bulbs from the green grocers but they never seem to get to a decent size, we will see if it’s the bulbs or my lack of green finger ability.

I recieved an E-mail yesterday from a journalist of the local paper saying can we do a story on your scummy scunny scrumpy business. This was quite a shock not to be contacted by the paper but that I did not know that I had a business going. Where do people get this information from? Stonehead a fellow blogger from the wilds of Scotland (see blogroll) was also contacted yesterday by the BBC wanting to do some sort of review, but in true crofter style he told them that he was too busy to discuss it as he was baking prune flapjacks, now there is a man who has his priorities in order.
