Questions and Answers / Overwintering garlic in Zone 7a
« on: October 11, 2018, 06:20:03 pm »
What could possibly go wrong?

What if I put 8 cloves of Elephant Garlic in an EB Root&Veg right now?

Is this totally stupid? Will it all freeze solid or will ice crack the EB?

Tips and Tricks / Toothpicks and skewers

My contribution:
Toothpicks and those bamboo barbecue skewers are helpful a lot of ways.
For example, I planted radish seeds in the R&V. I used toothpicks to keep the flaps of the plastic mulch out of the way until the seedlings were strong and large enough to deal.

Introductions / It all started with marigolds ...

I ended up growing some marigolds last year. I liked them.
Then I got a "rescue azalea" from my church's Easter flowers.
So I went to Lowe's to get some marigolds this spring.
They had PEPPERS!! And HERBS! And tomatoes!

And somebody told me about EB.
SO in addition to conventional containers, I ended up jockeying one EB full of herbs, one with peas, podding as we speak, and a root&veg with carrots and radishes.
At the sale I got 3 more regular EBs and 1 more R&V and while I fight pests on this years crop, I make plans for next years.

This is fun!
