Hello, it's your garlic here...

Posted 5/14/2010 5:26pm by Cheryl.

Yes, our garlic.  It's been sitting there patiently since November/December and has been growing steadily and not asking too much of us.  But now it says that if we want to harvest over a ton of it next month, we'd better get it some irrigation and more food!  We've weeded it once and have given it a few foliar feedings but as the weather moves into a drought (or at least it feels that way), it is demanding some real water.

We laid drip tape when we planted in anticipation of this moment but between the wind and the flock of wild turkeys that loved to root around in the wheat straw over the winter, the tape was a mess.  (Remember 'Turkey In The Straw'?)  We needed to get it straightened out and ready to provide some essential moisture to those growing bulbs.

With some ingenuity on the part of one of our employees, Nick, we got the lines laid out nicely and now the water is flowing.  Ah, relief!  I was sure I heard a cheer from the Chesnok!

Nick's great idea!
