Hello, friends. Happy August! Know what this is a photo of?
If that photo didn’t make you squint or recoil, CONGRATULATIONS! You are probably a fellow garlic obsessive.
We’ve been travelling, so we’re really late harvesting our garlic this year. We’ve also lost the tiny diagram I made to indicate where we planted the different varieties. Still, the garlic looks pretty good. When I’m pulling the plants, I tend to feel disappointed by how tiny the bulbs appear. Later on, when they’re drying off, they seem to grow in size – at least, to my eyes.
We picked about 150 bulbs this year. We’ll save the biggest and best of them for planting as seeds in the autumn, and either eat or give away most of the rest.
What are you up to, in the waning days of summer?
