I've managed to tuck garlic into 3 beds now, separating their cloves and poking them into deep, compost-amended soil. I've had no trouble growing garlic, and we've enjoying eating it. Perhaps I haven't grown giant heads, due to my parsimonious watering and fertilizing, but last year's harvest was a bumper crop.
I've used homegrown garlic to replant this year for the first time. It's fun to continue that cycle, although some of the cloves aren't as large as I'd like.

The asparagus has flourished through the growing season, too, and is looking robust and vigorous. After it goes dormant, I'm planning to consolidate two primary growing beds, to accommodate a couple of outliers that I stuck in place as an afterthought.

About this blog
Our gardens (now solely in the mountains of NC) have been increasingly home to native plants, birds, small mammals, and insects of all sorts. My gardening companion (my husband) is equally the gardener in our gardens. Woody, our rescue Golden, puts his own stamp on our gardens. He follows his previous fellow goldens (and my former gardening assistants): Mocha and Chessie. They bring life to our gardens.
