Autumn is well and truly here with some early morning frost today. However, the sun has been shining and it's been the perfect few days to get out in the garden.
Bramble and I decided to plant some garlic and onions. The garlic is French Thermidrome and Marco, which apparently are quite strong. Last year, I planted my garlic a little late and then we had a really long dry spell. So we are hoping that next year's crop will be better than this years, which were good, but a tad small. The onion sets are Electric Red, and the shallots are Jermor.
The downside of Mrs TK having horses is that we have to muck-out the stables every winter morning, although, luckily the girls are not inside yet. The upside is that I always have plenty of well-rotted manure to mix in with the soil. So Bramble and I dug in a few wheelbarrow loads before planting.
