    Well I was reading a well known monthly recipe magazine last nite and it has an article about garlic and it called it a head of garlic but then in the very first recipe it says to use a whole bulb of garlic. So guess what stil none the wiser ????? :shrug: :shrug: :shrug:

    Pulled my garlic this morning. Was hoping to leave it in a little longer, but saw it was going to rain so bit the bullet. I only put in one bed this year (one of my round corregated iron beds), but because I got it on at the right time and the soil was good (a lot of compost), I got a decent crop with many of the bulbs being bigger than I have ever managed before. Will take a picture on the weekend if I get a chance. The smeall is fantastic. I took 5 bulbs to work this morning straight after I’d pulled them to tease work colleagues with (I handed them over – but the tease is that they will then realise what real garlic is like as they go back to their crap chinese stuff). By the time I gave them away this arv, my office smelt so strongly of garlic people must have thought I was bathing in the stuff LOL.

    Got the Mrs to plat the garlic now that the stems are pretty much fully dry. The good thing is that since we build a walk in pantry a few months back (walling in a nook in an adjacent room and cutting a hole in the existing pantry to access the new pantry) we have the ability to hang them without them getting in the way.

    Wowee veggie boy. That’s a whole lot of blood beautiful bulbleheads of garlic! : P You’ll be safe from the vampires for halloween tomorrow. Hope it lasts you all year. I’m in SEQ too but I haven’t pulled mine up yet. Can’t remember when I put it in either come to think of it.

    I dug around one bulb today and it’s tiny, i’m in north vic. Probably atleast a month to go. However i need to move house in a couple of days. Wondering if i can transplant.

    Great harvest and fantastic plating job. I planted mine on the winter solstice and plan to harvest on the summer solstice. It worked beautifully last year and we are still eating it – lovely.

    Not sure if this helps:

    (a google search will show it can be called either bulb or head … maybe it is a geographical ting … )
