Giant Rusian Red Garlic...

With the way the gardening season was this year and the fact that the garlic wasn't planted in the fall I wasn't expecting to have much success. There were a lot of volunteers from the scape's that I had scattered around in the fall so I planted those as well as the cloves. This season I cut the scape's  thinking the energy would go into the bulbs...

Working on this years crop it turned out to be a good year

This Bouquet is for Ray who made the pot back in the day.

Pookie, a Camellia which we have in our courtyard and a Sask. stump puller
Buddy's favorite spot under the garden cart, Mom's Peace rose is still blooming and poppies from earlier this year.
Taking care of the garlic hoping to spread among family and friends. Have a Happy Day everyone!

  1. Hi Rob,

    Impressive! You certainly have a green thumb.

    Thanks for celebrating Blue Monday's 7th blogiversary.

  2. Wow, an impressive crop of garlic. So far, due to space I only grow Music and am trying to gradually increase the harvest from my own cloves.
    The Peace Rose is a lovely variety, pretty colours.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Rob.

  6. Your copper kettle looks much like one I got from my mother. She had a collection of old ones. My garlic is very small, but powerful. Maybe I need to try a different variety to get larger bulbs. - Maryg
