The blonde guy from Depeche Mode?
I’m very pleased with myself. Yesterday I picked my first garlic bulb.
I’m surprised because it was from a batch I planted in mid January, while the garlic I planted at the end of October is not yet fully formed.
Also surprised because it was from an odd mix of bulbs that had been sitting in my car boot for weeks.
It’s no surprise that I don’t know what this garlic is called.
looks sweet AND fresh!
So sweet, I can’t wait to see what the rest of this batch are like!
Yeah, and I just can’t seem to get enough, ahhh, garlic and other vegetables!
Agreed it will my own personal cheeses(?). Oh Dear!
I don’t know that many DM songs, but that’s just wrong! 😉
I love the purple streaks. Colour is best for this one!
I think you’re right. Thanks for the comment!
as you said, martin gore’s reincarnation. or, more poetical counterfeit bis.
(the alium looks great. congrats.)
Martin Gore, that’s the one! I wonder would he be happy to be reborn as a head of garlic?
for sure. one life you rich your high potential, one life you relax…which life is which? It depends.
Great looking garlic and I am sure equally good taste. On our allotment site all the garlic has been taken up early having been attacked by rust.
Sorry to hear it! That’s another disease I knew nothing about, along with Chocolate Spot, which I have on my broad beans!
I love the new look around here Val! Eye-poppingly brilliant! And what a great shot of the fuzzy mop atop the garlic! So happy to be back to take a walk around the allotment. I’ll be awhile. Don’t mind me. 🙂
You’re welcome to potter around anytime you like Spree.
Fun photos!! You made me laugh!! Ha.. I used to love Depeche Mode.. well, I probably still do! A garlic by any other name would smell as .. er.. garlicky?? I wish I had a few of those in my garden!!
Hi Barbara, not sure why I had to approve your comment, anyway, I have enough garlic to make at least a big band of blondie musicians!
Garlic rules… As long as you’re not a vampire, that is!
Vampires can be very picky!
