Stinking Rose

The first summer we lived in our house in Spruce Grove, Jenn lept at the chance to fill the front flower bed with all manner of wonderful annuals. The following year, renovations prevented us from working too hard on that, and weeds took over. Last summer, it was the same, weeds until I dug up the whole lot and pulled everything out.

This summer, I will be taking over the flower bed for my rose garden - a stinking rose garden, that is. I have ordered a few bulbs of seed garlic, and I will be planting in the spring. I have no idea how much of the front garden 4 heads of seed garlic will take up, but what I do know is that I have had really fresh garlic in the past - stuff that was not shipped in from Thailand - and it is so much better than the grocery store stuff that it is worth having a crack at. Worst case scenario - the garden looks better than it did the last two years.
