Harvested 75 Provence Wight garlic bulbs yesterday from my polytunnel and tidied them up before putting them on racks to dry off today. Excellent result with advice from Charles Dowding (the “no dig guru) on don’t leave them too long in the ground. When they’re ready, they’re ready! If you let the bulbs start splitting, soil gets between the layers and that’s what rots them.

Good job I like it too. As you can imagine my clothes all went in the wash afterwards but do love it. I make a years worth of passata  with tomatoes, garlic, oregano, olive oil and sweet onions roasted and then bottled. Beats the Dolmio rubbish.

Jill, I have counted 7 hedgehogs tonight.

Wonder what baked Hedgehog with Garlic would be like with tagliatelli.

Aren't you supposed to cover them with clay and bake them in the embers of a fire?

Yep, and when the clay is broken off, it removes the spines and skin. There's bugger all on them though, so you would need two, accompanied with a side salad.
