Garlic


I harvested a little garlic on the weekend and wow, it smells amazing! For the next few weeks it will hang in our little cottage in the backyard drying, and I will wait, patiently, until I can use it.

  3. Yum garlic! Your gardens look awesome Kim :) It's nice how the business of preparing and planting the garden transitions to a more laid back pace of harvesting and occasional weed pulling.

    1. Thanks so much Josee. I totally agree, we are loving the slower pace around the garden right now. Although the canning is about to pick up in pace...

  5. You too? We harvested ours Monday night. I should have thought about where to dry it beforehand; I ended up scrambling to rig up a piece of wire screen on a pair of sawhorses in the shed...which is so far from an ideal setup it's almost ridiculous (we barely have enough room in the shed as it is...). But I cannot wait to be able to use it... xo

    1. Haha, that is too funny. Hey as along as it dries that is all the matters, right? I can't wait either, we are counting down the days.

    1. Next year for sure, keep in mind that garlic has to go in the ground in the fall, for a summer harvest :) Enjoy!
