Garlic Planting

Anyone remembering last summers garlic and would like to grow their own, will find this video useful.  He talks a lot but I learned a bit as well. I really enjoyed the Scapes last year so will plant some hard neck garlic this week.
Typically first frosts occur in Colwood during November 21st to 30th. and this video suggests planting 30 days before this happens. Enjoy.

Cleaning and Weeding

As we clean up our plots for the winter, we were reminded not to put weeds in the compost. The photo below shows a slow down  in plant decomposition.
It appears that weeds do not compost as well as other plants, so this week we will have a weed container provided by Judy just to put our season-end weeds in.
