So far so good.
This is our first time growing garlic so we are experimenting with a few different harvest times to see what might store the best.
A trowel is necessary to dig the garlic bulb out of the ground without breaking it from the leaves.
All sources say it is very important to keep freshly harvested garlic out of the sun. The shade from an adjacent raised bed worked well for this purpose.
After harvesting, drying is a priority. We tied our plants together about 5 to a bundle...
then hung them from our barn rafters to cure for a month or so.
Can't wait to try some of our own homegrown garlic!
