Tis that time of year again! It’s a been a very rainy summer around here, and I was hopeful the garlic would make it through ok. This is our kids favorite part of the garden, as it gives them plenty of writing fodder for school presentations. Freetime and sunshine finally aligned and we gently pulled the garlic out of the ground. (Normally I dig it out, but decided to see if a gently tug would loosen the heads. Definitely a more gentle method)

So now we let seventy-two heads of garlic dry. The summer has still been wet, and I’m attempting to dry under our deck – without its awning. I took a few pieces of plywood and laid it on the deck above the garlic for some protection that seems to be working well for now.

The garlic harvest came at the perfect time, as we only had three heads of last years harvest left. Next year’s resolution, make more garlic bread! We only had a few loaves this year.
