Yes it is normal, they’re called corms, we use them as an indicator that the garlic is ready to start harvesting when they change to a yellow/golden colour as shown in your pic.
They are nice eaten raw (peeled of course 😉 )but tend to loose their flavour when cooked, they can be replanted but will take a long while to shoot if they…[Read more]

I’m in tears now
Sorry calliecat, that wasn’t my intention but I think everyone should be aware of what’s going on, I’m surprised the media haven’t picked it up and shamed the pollies.
Have a look at this, very disturbing.

When I had kidney failure, I was told not to eat silver beet unless it was cooked in milk due to the oxalic acid. :shrug:

is politics just like football to you were you pick a team and support them without too much thought?

I love tamarillos and I have had one get to about two and a half meters tall and survive most of the winter only to be killed by a heavy late frost, I haven’t given up and will try to grow one in a sheltered area, I have succeeded on those lines…[Read more]

A few years ago our power bill skyrocketed to well over twice as much as we had been paying, I didn’t know about any of these gadgets that measure each appliance (maybe they didn’t have them then ) :whistle:

Wish I had one 🙁
We have one here interested to know if they are edible and if so how can they be used?
Nev said “I’m a bumhole (does that count?)”
lol It must do, they’re everywhere. lol
Hi Judi, cheers for the recipes, we will have rosellas as well soon, just a question; how much port for the sauce?
Edit: Just a quick note to all who may be confused:
That would be me, it’s a bit of a one sided argument lol not that I want to argue with you Len (no point) I must lack wisdom as you so wisely put it Len because I can’t produce garlic organically as cheap as my friend down the road who uses chemical fertilizers etc. so enlighten me…[Read more]
The cucumbers look interesting lavman – what do they taste like?
They are very bland, not bitter, similar to a crystal apple but a lot fleshier and not as tasty, I prefer crystal apple but the Giant Russian is not as prone to fruit fly attack, still gets some but we cut them lengthways and feed them to the chooks and they only leave the skins.
