in which our plucky heroine reaps what she sowed...
Last Autumn hardneck garlic (variety "Music" from the farmers market) was planted in the new raised bed next to Feral Grapevine. As they do, the garlic sprouted and grew, and once protected from the Gorram Squirrels of Doom, they grow well with minimal input and no additional water. Eventually, they send up scapes aka blossom shoots, which get removed as that allows all the efforts of the plant to create larger bulbs.
