I have a ridiculous level of gardening insecurity. Since we bought this place, I've been largely unsuccessful at growing edibles, which was kind of the whole point of buying the place at all. A fantasy of being a hobby farmer/suburban homesteader is one thing, but the harsh reality is something else entirely. Not enough time, not enough built-in infrastructure, don't own the expensive tools that would make it easier, don't know the soil here, don't know the drainage here, making mistakes, etc. Sure, I'm learning, but geez - I wish it just was more impressive.
But, look, something worked out OK this year: garlic!
The end result of our work back in November.
I didn't have time to make pretty braids. But I've got plenty of garlic hanging in my kitchen.
