Onions and Garlic for Winter

I've been drying my onions in my mini-greenhouse the last few days, and today decided to string them up and hang them in the shed, along with the garlic. It's the first time I've grown both, so I'm really pleased with how they've turned out.
I really like the idea of having enough produce to put by for use through winter. Very 'Good Life'. I haven't managed it this year, but would like to at some point.
I've taken the last couple of days kind of off. I've been feeling overloaded. Like I'm in one of those transparant balls that you can roll around in. Everything is shifting around me. So it was good to just be at home with Hagos and let go of my own expectations. String up vegetables, snuggle up on the couch with Hagos and fall asleep to an old film, read for pleasure, discover a new writer (Scarlett Thomas), and go to the cinema.

Next month I plan on sheet mulching a large section of our back yard/garden (yarden?) for growing vegetables next year. Up until a few years ago I had a very nice veggie patch, but then we added on to our house and the vegetable garden disappeared. But, oh, I do miss it! Your onions and garlic look very nice strung up in the shed.

It sounds like you've had a nice couple of days at home. Sometimes, that's all a person needs to set the world right again.
