Garlic crop planted

I managed to get our garlic crop in just in time for our Autumn rains. This year I've planted around 10kg of cloves so we should have enough to sell some at Farmers' markets as well as plenty for our own use.
We've put in four varieties - French, Australian White, Australian Red Striped and Californian Late. Assuming a decent growing season, we should be able to start cropping early in December and we should still be able to harvest the late variety next February or even early March. So with a bit of luck we expect quite an extended season. (But of course on the farm things don't always work out as expected).
