Farming

On Sunday we were mostly planting garlic.

504 cloves now done. The majority of the time was spent cleaving the bulbs - filling the potting trays with potting compost and putting individual cloves into the compost took somewhat less time.

We also finished putting the compost into the polytunnel - a total of somewhere around 4 tonnes of the stuff - and putting down chipped bark on the walking areas to (a) stop weeds coming up there, and (b) avoid it getting too muddy.
