Garlic Overload

It’s been 9 months since I planted my garlic, and it is finally ready to harvest!  This was the first time we tried garlic, and it really took off.  We now have 31 heads of garlic — each from one little clove we planted.  How cool is that?

Here they all are after being pulled out of the ground and washed off.

And now they need to dry out in the sun for a few weeks before we store them for use the rest of the year.

Oh, and speaking of that 9 month growing period for the garlic… I’m sorry I’ve been so MIA on the blog lately but it’s because I’ve got my own (very first!) 9 month little peapod in the works.

Happy July, everyone.  Hope your garden is being good to you!
