Garlic bulbs drying before I plait them for hanging.
There are about 27 bulbs. I will wait a few more days, then wipe the remaining dirt off of them and trim off the roots. I will keep the three largest bulbs for planting next season.
These carrots were from one row. They were next to a row of parsnips and were substantially longer and larger than the row of carrots on the other side of the bed that grew next to beetroot. Food for thought for next year.
These are from the row that grew next to the beetroot. More like baby carrots, and I think I will blanch them whole and freeze them.
This strange carrot looks like a Mandrake fresh out of a Harry Potter movie!
I think this variety of Parsnip is called Hollow crown? This is the amount that grew in a single 2 metre row. Not too bad a crop. I will peel and blanch these tomorrow night as well.
I then spend the rest of the daylight hours until sunset planting 19 tomato seedlings of various cultivars. I only put 1.2m stakes next to them because I am going to stop them from growing any higher so that I can put shade cloth over the beds to protect the crop from the Summer heat.
Tomorrow night, I start the irrigation project in earnest. More photos tomorrow, and possibly a tutorial video from whoa to go. I will see how it all pans out.
