Garlic haul 2018

I think we waited a bit too long to pull these out this year. The outer skin has peeled off or disintegrated and when I pulled many of them out, the stalk just came out of the ground with the rest of the bulb still under.

We also had a lot of the garlic cloves pushed up out of the soil after the snow melt, so many of them didn’t even grow. We would have had at least double or triple this harvest if all of the ones we planted grew.

Oh well. Lessons learned for next time. Plant more. Plant deeper. Harvest sooner.
