These extremely raised beds are doing the trick. Despite the relentless rain, except while I was taking this morning’s picture, the garlic is not drowning. In fact, it’s looking quite a bit better than last year’s batch (which got too big too fast the previous fall, before winter). This crop didn’t show itself until after the new year but has since been on a mission. I found two slugs on leaves about 4 weeks ago but none since I began their organic feeding program (Slug-B-Gon). Looking forward to June 25 which, according to Linda Gilkeson, is Portuguese Red harvest time.
