Garlic and lavender

Okay, haven't updated much. I did get my garlic in on Christmas Eve and today popped over the the POURING rain. Honestly, it looked like it was going to clear up but I've never been so wet in my life - it was the first time ever my Howies jacket actually got soaked through. But I wanted to bring my lavender plants over to transplant them because they've been knocked off my back deck twice now by high winds. So they're in a little corner of the flower bed now.

Unfortunately some of the flower bulbs seem to be coming up. And I suspect even some of the garlic. I can't believe it but I wish we would get a proper frost.

Tomorrow was going to be my proper day off but it's supposed to rain, so I guess I'll postpone a day of bramble chopping until Monday or Tuesday.

I am at a similar stage of root clearing. I am resisting the temptation to plant at the moment, as I really want to dig half of the plot before I put paths in. The ground is so uneven that I can't think of anyother way to do it.

Hi, I found your blog whilst browing for other allotment gardening blogs. I've added you to my links at If you'd like to link back to me that would be great, but it's entirely up to you.
