Returned the harvested Garlic to the plot so it can dry out in the shed, just didn’t have anywhere to dry it at home.

Also had time to earth up the potato bins, sort out the shed a little to create space for the garlic to dry and finish building the poly tunnel for the salad bed. All in all a productive evening.
