Eddie’s Garlic.

Since my father died I have been growing the strain of garlic that he used to grow.

On my birthday, 18 November, each year, I plant 27 cloves of the garlic strain.

I harvest the garlic bulbs on the 27 July (Eddie’s birthday) of the following year.

I split the harvested bulbs into cloves (some years 100+…….other years as few as 30 or 40)

I save 27 cloves to plant again on my birthday to continue the strain and the process.

Remaining cloves are eaten or given to trusted friends to grow.

Some years I try to photograph aspects of this process, in my studio, my home, my garden and this engagement might, in some way, act as a form of healing.

The process continues…….
