Garlic!  Traditionally we plant out our garlic bed on the shortest day, and harvest it on the longest, I enjoy observing these seasonal changes.

Pulled up, brushed off and braided, all set to dry over the next few weeks.

Harvest was followed by Good Food, like this tomato, lentil, and rocket salad, Yum.

Now, the days will begin to shorten, the hottest part of the summer is near, and we turn towards Winter.
