We spent the morning in the garden lifting the remaining beetroots before the tops start to rot and then planting garlic.
The beetroots are delicious and sweet so I’m hoping that just leaving them in the cool sitting on newspaper keeps them so we have at least got some for over the winter. ‘Veg patch roast’ is one of son#2’s favourite dinner and I’m sure it comes from being able to pull up the beet himself.
Last year the children’s nana gave us some garlic to plant. It grew well and with the last of about 12 bulbs that grew and dried successfully, we split up the cloves and planted these to grow over winter and spring.
