Garden News at Home and at My Old Elementary School 7/22/16
This week I've been going over to where I went to Elementary school as a child to help them with the gardens. I've been getting the pickers out that have invaded the flower bed. I found this twisty tool at a garage sale and it's been a back saver!
This is the little square foot garden that I planted at the school garden. I wasn't the best garden tender there but some of it did pretty well. The potatoes will be ready to harvest after the tour.
Garden News at Home:
My garlic was dry so I decided this week that I would try and dry some garlic powder. This is a new experience for me.
I did a lot of the work outside on our garden sink. You know this stuff can really smell.
Then I placed the garlic cloves in the dehydrator. As I was researching I quickly learned that I should cut the garlic into slices. I then dehydrated this for about 10 hours and unfortunately that was not enough. I went to grind it in my blender and it just became one big sticky ball. I decided to save it in my refrigerator anyway to use soon in recipes. I'll give dehydrating garlic a try again next year.
I'll have some pictures soon of the big vegetable garden in the backyard. The zucchini's are never ending!
How's your garden growing?
