Harvest Time!!!

Category: GARLIC | Posted: Thu Jan 12, 2012 2:49 pm

Six months had passed and they just looked like they are not going to grow any further.


Garlic ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
A couple of the plants had lost their bulb and I have no idea why or how. Looking at the picture I am sure you can imagine how hot the weather is!


No Bulb??? ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
Here is a picture of one of the plants with the missing bulb.


Leeks?? ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
These are the plants with the bulb and they do not resemble garlic bulbs at all because there is no cloves. They look excatly like leek don't they?

It Worked!!

Category: GARLIC | Posted: Thu Aug 25, 2011 3:48 pm

I am not sure wether it was the incense or the ice treatment trick that did it! Hahaha!!!

I am sure it was none of the above hocus pocus, just a coincidence I believe. Anyway I am pleased that they are growing .... YES!

Took Sojerd advice and placed insence stick in the four directions and ....


It snowed? ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

it snowed!!! Wow!! Looks like I am getting fall garlic soon!!

Hahaha!!! Just joking, the ice is from the freezer that Becky was cleaning and I thought that if I can con the garlics into believing that a quick winter just passed, it might just start to wake up and grow!

"PEEK - A - BOO"

Category: GARLIC | Posted: Thu Aug 11, 2011 4:03 pm

The situation in the garlic pot is still very much the same and seems lifeless so I decided to take peek.


Did it multiply?! ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
I was really surprised when I parted the mulch right in the middle of the pot. I remembered that I only had one clove there when I started and now looks like two ...hmmm. I am very sure that only one clove is planted in each position. Anyway I left it as it is and covered the clove or cloves back with some earth and mulch. Well one thing for sure they are still alive.

Resting?

Sleeping? ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

This photo is taken today and still no sign of anything yet. The weather had been really pleasant and cool for the past few with very light drizzle every now and then. Hmmm .... do you think that they think winter is coming?

It's Lifeless!

Lifeless ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

Is it lifeless? It sure did take care of the intruder problem but what is happening to the residents? Maybe they are building their foundation first .... I mean growing roots. Guess just have to keep my fingers crossed, keep watering them and hope one of them will pop up real soon!

Mulch in a Pot

Category: GARLIC | Posted: Fri Jul 22, 2011 4:09 pm


Garlic ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
I noticed that the earth in the pot gets quite dry during the day because of the hot weather and intruders are raring their ugly heads!


Still Lifeless ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
The garlic seems to be happy just sitting there while the intruders were busy marking their territories.


Mulched ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )
I was mowing the lawn and I thought why not mulch it with the grass clipping to keep the intruders at bay and the earth in the pot moist. I have never put mulch in a pot before and it looks like a good idea at that time. Now I'm thinking ... will it affect the garlic?
