Re: Late Autumn Bits and Bobs.

HA! that made me laugh, because we did ours in April, and used the same technique! My husband dragged the stuff out, mainly without the rake, but my inspection of each bundle was done at rake's length! Lots of rat damage and waste as well as Boris and his friends.

Re: Early Autumn Bits and Bobs.

Monika, I think I'll plant my garlic in cells this year too, as I am now growing at home, and I don't have the veg patch available yet, they will be going in a tin bath in the spring. I have a cold greenhouse, so they should be ok in there.
