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.
