2021 Garlic にんにく #2

4/26/2021 I guess it is safe to say that spring is here. We still have subzero temperature cold nights though flowers are blooming everywhere and grass grows green! Normally, I am busy preparing plants for the garden around this time of the year but I’ve decided take a break this season. We have a long road trip coming up in May to early July and I won’t be home to take care of my precious garden. We still have garlic though… We can set up the irrigation system and water the plants that is no problem but I can’t cut scapes… I don’t know what will happen when I leave the scapes on and let the flower blooms. Anyway there is nothing I can do so I am hoping to harvest big healthy garlic when we get home. Finger crossed!!

2021年4月26日 お久しぶりです。ハドソンバレーにもようやく春がやってきたので、お庭について更新します。今年は5月中旬から6−7週間ほど長期のロードトリップに出かけるので、家庭菜園はお休みすることにしました。と、いきなり休業宣言(泣) 苦渋の決断ではあるけれども、色々とお世話が必要な時期に家を開けることになるので、潔くやめることにしました。ニンニクだけはすでに植っているので、このまま育て続ける予定というか、これも勝手に育ってもらう感じです。難点なのは、ニンニクの芽が出てくるタイミングで家におらず、おそらくニンニクのお花が咲いてしまうこと。そうなると、お花に栄養が集中してニンニク自体には栄養がいかず上手く育たないのかもしれません。まぁこればっかりは帰ってきてみないとわからない感じです。今のところニンニクは順調に育っています!

As of 4/25/2021

I planted small cloves to the left and biggest on the right side of the box. I would love to know whether the size of the cloves affect the end product.


To change the subject, we did some decorations in the living room, putting some hand-curved canoe paddles that we made up on the wall. What do you think?


Hanged two on the right side and one(long one) above the window.
We got an inspiration from Etsy and Rich decide to make the hooks by using and bending quarter-sawn oak.
