Some warm summer days mean that it may be time to harvest your garlic if the tops have died down. If they haven’t you can always lift a bulb or two gently with a fork while you wait. I plant garlic close together which means the bulbs aren’t huge, but no less delicious for all that.
The back step salad has needed some extra defences against hungry blackbirds. Ten out of the eleven radish seeds I sowed a week ago are up, no sign of the spinach yet.
