I have seed of JN available if you would like some Godawgs
Thank you and I really appreciate the offer but I'm afraid the SVB would make a mess of them. Once I somewhat start winning that battle I might take you up on it! ;)

Thanks for the kind comments Miss

As I have said in the birthday thread, Saturday was spent at the local garlic festival where I picked up the following clones

Rose due Var
Purple Creole
Purple Stripe
Printanor
Mariposa de la Tierra
Deerfield Purple
Dynamite
Wilde Oriental
Vegan
Wilde Silverskin
Californian
Violette d'agen
Italian Red
Dunganski
Volcanite
Spanish Solace

And one of the Elephant garlics,
Johnson Creek Giant Garlic. This has been grown on the one family property for 3 generations, so around 60 years or more. The seller is granddaughter of original planter and she has been seriously growing it for five years and has the biggest globe up to nearly 5 inches across.

Tomatoes are coming in properly now, but due to rain (230 mm since start of the year) some are splitting badly and taste is washed out. Only had to run the pump 3 or 4 times this year, will shortly pack up soaker hoses. Photos to follow as I get the time.

    Beautiful! I'm really longing for the taste of a fresh homegrown tomato right now. Heavy sigh... :)

    Some variety of elephant garlic has spread itself around my garden. I thought it was a leek (it is) and I used it as such cutting the tops rather than pulling, allowing the bulbs and bulbils to grow aplenty. Unlike regular garlic EG multiplies through wee bulblets at the base of the large one and through seeds. If left in the ground over winter the seeds hang on until spring when they sprout on the flower structure and drop to the ground to grow. I tried saving seeds last summer but there were few that were ripe enough at bulb digging time.
    At one point I had hundreds of them in the ground but have given away lots of bulbs and am down to a reasonable number now. They grew well with little attention wilding themselves in here and there. Insects and hummingbirds like the flowers.

    The Gold Rush x Jade Numbat Zucchinis cross plants continue to yield well, recently grated a batch for fritters, one of the larger zucchini had seed showing quite clearly

    One thing that kept me busy for several days was about 20 kg of Green Gage plums. These are one of the best tasting plums, but they don't hold well. Most went into bottles with 8 lb of jam to clean up the ripest of them.
