Independence Nectarines on Independence Day!

Fruit & squash
Fruit & squash

Apricots, the last of the nectarines, the first Santa Rosa Plum, and another 8-ball zucchini. The netting didn't stop the squirrels from grabbing and eating 4+ apricots, but it's definitely curbing the losses.

The nectarines look a little strange, but they are incredibly sweet and flavorful. I can't wait until the tree matures and is able to bear more fruit.

So for those of you who are familiar with garlic, I dug up a few plants and they look like this.



It's softneck garlic--I planted Trader Joe's cloves that started to sprout. The plants are starting to fall over in the garden, so does that mean they're ready to be harvested? The heads look good, but I don't know if the rest of the plants should be left in the ground or dug up now.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  • Congratulations on your harvest. I planted garlic last year & you should pull them out once the leaves start turning yellow or start to wilt.
