Garlic Twins or Triplets

The Red Russian Garlic from Salt Spring Seeds are growing well..

so well, that they are sending out more than one shoot..

2 or 3 actually! This happens often with bulbs, they should be thinned to allow a single bulb to develop to its full size.

Its easy, hold the soil around the base of the shoot you are keeping and try to get the whole bulb you are removing by gently working it out of the ground.

Cut off the top greens and enjoy!
