Because I'm not sure what was what when I dug up the garlic out of my old garden late last summer I'm hoping to identify everything when I dig it up this coming summer/fall. The varieties that they could be are...
- Nootka Rose
- Kidwell Heirloom
- Lorz Italian
- Some kind of bulb that doesn't make cloves. It kind of looks like tulip bulbs. Go figure.
Other than those couple of varieties that I harvested I wasn't able to dig up the others and they came back up on their own in 2011. The bulbs were small and not of good quality but I had to save Travis' garlic. I had hoped to get it in the ground last fall but DH's back wasn't up to using the tiller and so I had to wait. Now it's in and I'm excited to see how it turns out. :-)
I was kind of weirded out that when I was researching the different types of garlic that I have on Google
Images I kept running across my blog and pictures that I had taken of my garlic bed and garlic braid...
I loved this braid made from Chet's Italian
(bought from Territorial Seed which I'm not growing)
Oh how good it felt to get my hands into the soil and do some planting!! Good therapy for a troubled soul!! The kids kept commenting how happy I looked after I was finished. ;-) Blissful sigh.
