First Garlic Harvest
We harvested our first garlic this morning! The ‘Maiskij’ variety reached the point of having 5 dead leaves, so we dug it to begin the drying process.
The bulbs are big and beautiful! The roots were also very deep in the soil. We could definitely see the difference between the ones that were right next to the edge of the raised bed and the ones that were near the drip lines. (Yes, my pen is broken. I dropped it. Oops.)
Two other varieties – Sonoran and Ajo Rojo are just at the 3 leaves dead stage where we are going to try not to water them until they are ready to harvest.
