    Well after all my work I provided for my table , but I didn't get to share. My corn crop got planted to late. I know I need at least 35 bags of creamed corn and I got 36. I am happy for me , was still able to share a few dozen prime ears .Its amazing how much people can appreciate that. Now it is on to makin bacon with my thawed pork belly.

    Easiest Crop There Is



    I just separate the cloves, stick them in the ground in early November, and dig them up in early to mid June. Garlic is a good pairing with couch potato.

    For several years now, I've grown two garlic varieties. My softneck variety is Czech Broadleaf. The hardneck is Slovenian Anka.

    If I forget to dig softneck garlic, it will remind me in plenty of time by simply falling over. That's what kicked me into gear today. Yesterday evening, I noticed that half the garlic was recumbent. The other half, the hardneck garlic, instead produces a curly scape out the top. If not cut off (and either discarded, or cooked and eaten as a vegetable), the scapes will produce a fur-ball allium flower at the expense of the garlic head.

    Today, I dug the Czech garlic, and cut the scapes off of the Slovenian garlic. I'll dig the latter in another week or two.

    Curiously, Slovenians count more consistently than Czechs. A head of Anka garlic always has 8 cloves. So when I plant the cloves of 2 heads, I get 16 new garlics. By contrast, a head of Czech Broadleaf garlic has a variable number of cloves. My 2 heads of Czech yielded 25 cloves.

    I'll tie bundles of today's garlic, and hang it to dry in the shed. Once dry, I will braid it. Hardneck garlic, of course, doesn't braid very gracefully.
