Garlic Harvest

Jun 10, 2012

Our garlic harvest came early this year, but was a really nice one.  I grow mostly soft neck varieties for braiding and ease of storage, but some hard neck for spicy summer eating as well.

It turns out that a garlic harvest is an ideal activity for a preschooler as it involves brute force, minimal delicacy, and dirt.

Since I now have an open bed I'm thinking about growing a crop of back eyed peas as cover.  I'd be curious to hear what others rotate in their garlic beds.

Happy harvesting.

Thanks, Johanna, for sharing your harvest with us. Your photos are super!
