I seem to have missed the garlic boat. I went to the garden centre today to buy the usual three or four bulbs to start off in the autumn, because they do best after being exposed to a spell of cold weather during winter (although I've sometimes cheated by shoving them in the fridge for a fortnight).
Nary a garlic to be seen. Sold Out. Can't get any more. Sob. What's a fella to do?
I notice that Marshalls are offering garlic for planting in the spring. I guess I'll have to fall back on that.
Funny old world if you can't get garlic; I blame they vampires, putting a curse on the crop to save their own skins.
