It was garlic harvesting day today!
This is my first time growing garlic. It was mostly successful – the birds kept rooting out my cloves early on, and some failed to shoot – but what i’ve ended up with looks (and smells) amazing.
Now that i’ve got the planting cycle straight in my head (pretty easy really…plant on the shortest day of the year, harvest on the longest) i’ll definitely be dedicating more space and effort to it next year. There’s nothing like having your own fresh garlic to cook with, after all!
Next step is to clean it and hang it to dry…still not sure how long that needs to take, but that’s what Google is for, right? 🙂
