three cheers for garlic!

Back in July I wrote about gathering the bunches of garlic that had grown up in our yard.  We picked them, braided them, and hung them in our shed, and after nearly two months, the bulbs were finally dry and ready to be stored.  

I cut off all the stems, trimmed the roots, and ended up with a beautiful pile of garlic!

Okay, so the basket did have a couple of small onions in it, too...  :)

It was a lot of fun to harvest and dry our own garlic, but we probably won't do it again.  Fresh, home-grown garlic is so cheap here that it really isn't worth our time to plant it again.  But it was fun to do this year, since we had it growing in our yard anyway.



  1. You have no idea how happy all that garlic makes me.
    Maybe you could wear one around your neck? :-D

    1. Don't worry... we live several hours away from Dracula's castle. :)
