Garden post.

Planted the garden yesterday.  The composter didn’t see too much action last summer, but check out what fruit it bears anyway.  I sifted out the larger chunks with my elder daughter, leaving this beautiful black goodness.  If I could post the smell here, I would: so deep.  I like saving everything and that includes money.

  1. I could talk compost with you all day. Well, for a while, anyway. I raided my compost in the fall for my garlic, so only had a little bit this spring. Much chunkier than yours, but good smelling, so that’s a good sign.

  2. I’m thinking of using the sifted-out chunks to kick-start the action in the new composter. (My parents decided to give up on composting and so bequeathed their composter to us.) Soybean pods seem completely invincible. I’m thinking I might weave them into bullet-proof estrogen vest.

    Didn’t get to plant any garlic last summer, but this year, one entire garden space (of two) will be devoted to it. Have you read “A Garlic Testament”?

  3. I haven’t read it, but I will look for it. I planted 200 or more cloves last year, ten different varieties, to see which ones I like best. I love growing garlic — deer and groundhogs won’t eat it, and you can just forget about all winter.

    I might just throw in the towel on everything else and become a garlic farmer.
