Another cycling glove makes the ultimate sacrifice

Garlic haul

One of the things that motivated me to get off my behind and do some gardening was yukky garlic. Once a year there is nice, fresh garlic available in the shops; the rest of the time it's blah. So without further ado, here is our first batch of home-grown garlic. Some of it's a bit skinny but I think that was largely due to the dry spring and early summer. Also the bulbs next to the banana tree didn't get very big. Lesson: don't plant anything next to a banana tree that will compete for water because the banana tree will win.

Happy 2014, everyone

I'm really just using this as an excuse to show off the sunflowers. But really, have a lovely 2014.
