Garlic yielded surprisingly well this year. It’s a porcelain type called “Music”. It liked southern side of the hill. I planted not a big quantity for my first year, so mostly all of this harvest will be replanted for the next year. I used a temporary shelter-greenhouse to dry the garlic and it worked really well.
So after drying the garlic I found another use for the same facility – to dry the out of date pitas for chickens.
Fresh bread attracts an amazing variety of animals. All kinds of birds including crows, wrenches and even woodpeckers; racoons, mice, dogs, foxes. Before I couldn’t use more then 5 – 10 pitas and had to leave the rest for a landfill.
Dry bread – is a totally different story. Now I can save all pitas I get in my compost from the grocery store.
