Garlic- rookie error!

The tips on a few of mine have yellowed- I was told to give them a sprinkling of Epsom salts. A little bit of yellow seems quite normal and is not an indication that they'll be ready soon.

We've got a chiminea but so far we've not used it to keep warm - OH uses it for burning old confidential paperwork - next time we get a pleasant evening we'll light it properly and put some firewood on it and try it out for you.

However we have friends who have lots of space and they have a big cast iron firebowl, and that is fantastic to sit around in the evening with a glass of something or three 

Dove but is it the drink or the fire keeping you warm?!
