One of our granddaughters and her husband helped me plant all of the garlic. We did it all on Friday! I had thought it would take us two days. It's all mulched with a nice layer of straw, and watered down to settle the straw into a nice blanket to keep the wind from blowing it away. Kristy and I moved the pile of bagged leaves I had brought home last fall. The bags had sun rotted so we rolled them onto a tarp and pulled or carried it down to the garden where we dumped them out and scattered them around. Our son Ron shredded the corn stalks, then got the rototiller going and tilled all of it into the soil. I still need to cover the old raspberry area with plastic for the winter, dig the grass and weeds from the new rhubarb planting sites and cover that with plastic to try to kill weeds. I need more compost for that area but will need to get it in the spring.

The nice looking elephant garlic was sold to the co-op along with small bulbs of the regular garlic. Nothing is left now to sell. The unsalable elephant garlic (about 10#) was planted. A few cloves were saved out for cooking.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
