Soaking it up
Baby in the Garden
All of this garlic (probably about 200 heads!) was started with a small handful of seeds some of our friends gave us about four years ago.
This particular variety of garlic has beautiful purple skins on the cloves (I will share more garlic pictures soon!)
For now, all of the garlic is hanging up in this small breezeway at our back door. Garlic needs to cure for about 30 days; the ideal place for curing garlic is shaded with good airflow.
Last year I tied it in bunches and hung it from twine, this year I just shoved it in between the spaces of this hanging planter; worked like a charm!
While harvesting garlic, we also dug up some onions…
