“But How’s the Garlic?”

The other half asked a couple of days ago as I was bemoaning the state of the garden. Regular readers may remember that last year I was asked to review Marshall’s Heritage Garlic Collection and they have since suffered storms Abigail to Frank, snow, heavy frost, the strangest spring weather since the plagues of Egypt and a certain amount of user error.

And the result? Well, put it this way, I was looking at them the other day and thinking ‘that’s odd, I could have sworn I’d dug up all the leeks already’.

Time will yet tell whether all this impressive growth actually translates into a decent garlic crop – and there is the tiny complication that somewhere between Abigail and Frank, all the labels blew away so I’m just going to have to guess which variety is which – but so far so good.
