I took a couple of minutes off from work (drafting plans) to post my recent harvest of GARLIC!
I like garlic almost in everything. I make this dressing for steak or salad. I read somewhere it is a natural antibiotic and it helps if you have a cold, and of course it gives you a stinky breath.
I also learnt from my experience with this crop that sowing a bigger clove will produce a bigger garlic head. I harvested the biggestgarlic headsfrom an area where little paddles will form after the rain, so I guess Garlic needs a good amount of water too.
And even though someone said Garlic should be ready by July, these ones where at the ripe point in June (when the bottom leaves are dry they are suppose to be ready for harvest)... I still have some more garlic heads growing in my garden.
I sowed these ones last November. Next November I am sowing double the amount I did last year.
The harvested ones will be hanging in partial shade for one month or so, I cut one to see inside and the cloves where green so they need to dry for awhile still.
Thanks for reading,
