This morning, I received an email from a foraging organisation which showed its excitement at the emergence of this year’s wild garlic. I therefore thought I had better pop outside to see if mine was showing through.
Hurray – and phew! Last autumn, I had dug out some dandelions and a few other roots I didn’t want. In the process, I thought I might have disturbed the wild garlic, so it was particularly pleasing to see the green shoots this morning.
I’ve actually still got a fair amount of normal garlic to eat, as the crop was so prolific last year. It is, however, starting to sprout now, so dishes are getting an extra helping of allium sativum!
