Garlic planted, finally

Posted by oldroser z5 (My Page) on

It went into the ground on Thursday, before the rainstorm. I dug a trench and filled it with a mix of composted cow manure and top soil and planted the cloves in that and then mulched with wood shavings. And then sowed winter rye on the bare spots in the vegetable garden.
Have to plant elephant garlic this week but first must stop at Adams for more Moo-Doo.
And have to clean up the tomato patch and store the stakes.
And there are still 15 or 20 potted plants that have to come in - mostly roses.
And bulbs to plant. Why is it that the older I am the behinder I get?

RE: Garlic planted, finally

For me the older I get, the more I think I should do. I still have plants that should have been planted. Half the vegetable garden is cleaned out. Mulched about a ton of leaves last night. About half a ton left to do. (slight exaggeration) I can't seem to let go of the garden this year. I'm trying to figure out how to keep going. Have several cuttings I'm trying to start. My South window is full of plants already. Oh and only half the bulbs are in. Also read somewhere that I should transplant a rose bush in November. Oh my.
