It was a gorgeous day to muck about the garden. After a half dozen days of clouds and rain (nine inches), it was nice to do something! This is my small patch next to the house and the heaviest of cloves were planted, in case my bigger garlic patch developes a problem. A few points; I didn't say on the video that I also added a cup of azomite, as is recommended by a few participants to this website, and this little plot of ground has received a lot of kitchen waste compost over about ten years, before which was littered thick with pine needles from five large trees..
