On replantery of garlic

SECOND YEAR GARLIC


A CLOSER LOOK
"Where has Vida G been all day?", queried Uncle Mac, "haven't seen hide nor hair since breakfast."
"Oh she's working in the garden. Said she found some garlic and was going to replant it." said Farm Girl.

"Yikes! Don't tell me she's digging up the fall garlic crop? That will pretty much put 'paid' to 2015 as far as that allium goes!"
"Well that's allium you can expect from a neophyte." Farm Girl said, "But no. As a matter of fact she is digging up the left over 2014 crop that we did not harvest, splitting the cloves and replanting them."
 SECOND YEAR GARLIC SPLIT TO 
REPLANT
"Did no one tell her that the yield is apt to be less than spectacular?" said Uncle M.
"Yes but you know Vida. And anyway why curb her enthusiasm? There's plenty of room and we can use the little cloves early on. Never enough garlic on hand, you know."
BEST OF LUCK IN YOUR NEW





LOCATION
"How many did she plant? Couple of dozen?"

"No, hundreds." said Farm Girl, she kind of got in a fugue state."
"Hundreds?", said a startled Uncle Mac, "Wow!"

  SEVERAL BEDS FULL


Turning in the direction of the open garden side door Uncle Mac bellowed, "It's Miller time, Vida, give the garlic a rest!"
"Whew!", said Vida G, as she burst through the door, "It was time to knock off anyway. I really worked up a sweat out there, and I think I'm learning my gardening ropes."
"Nice." said Farm Girl, in a dangerous tone.

"Urk!" said Uncle Mac

VIDA, ROPE-WISE AND SWEATY


We will, of course, let you know how Vidas experiment progresses.
