This weekend we went to my in-laws' garlic farm for the annual harvest. They have different kinds of garlic and some they had done already, but we helped out with the bulk of it - pulled and processed over 1,000 heads of garlic in those two days.
I've only got two dozen plants of my own and they're not quite ready yet. But when we got back yesterday my raspberries are starting to ripen, my faithful old gooseberry bush is producing lovely purple berries, and today or tomorrow I'll have snow peas to pick. Tomatoes are coming along nicely too, which makes me happy after last year's disasterous container experiment. Although my in-laws were saying last year was bad for tomatoes all around, so maybe it had nothing to do with containers vs. raised bed. Maybe I'll try again next year.
