We pulled the garlic this morning. Showers were predicted for the afternoon, so today was the day.
On the whole, it is AMAZING! The Chesnok Red did not do so well, but the Music looks good and the German Extra Hardy is huge and gorgeous. We harvested 54 cloves, which should last me until it is no longer fit to use. I will save the best bulbs to plant in the fall.
I planted it October 12 using cloves purchased at the Farmer’s Market. It is currently on a table in the barn with the fan on it, as it is very muggy here today, and the expected showers have arrived. I hope to hang it in the barn attic to cure, and will have a fan set on a timer to make sure to have good air circulation.
Thanks Dan for the excellent photography.
