Getting the garlic in.

Getting the garlic in has been on my To-Do list for a bit, but I had a hard time getting around to it!  It was something that needed to be done in a distinct time frame, but I kept putting it off for some unknown reason.  And I put it off until that most perfect fall day came!  Ah, sunshine and breezes and bright fall days!  That’s when I want to plant my garlic!  It was certainly a much nicer day than last year!

First, we start by soaking the cloves in a sea kelp emulsion:

Here, my favorite (my only!) nephew Fisher and John help out…

We had plenty of curious onlookers….(Oh I love seeing caterpillers.  You know why?  Because John calls them Pata-killers.  Love it!)

(And thankfully this little sweety found a new home this weekend!)

The boys and I weeded the raised beds…

Then we threw down corn so the chickens could finish the job while we went for a walk.

And another thing is crossed off this list!!!  (And hopefully this will be the last planting we do at this homestead!!)
