Garlic processed

Here’s the finished result of Karen’s hard work – garlic plaited and ready to dry. We ended up with eight big plaits and a whole lot of heads with no stalks attached. We’ll eat the singles first while the plaits can dry in the cool shed.

The cleaning was quite laborious this year as the ground was so wet when we harvested – lots of dirt stuck to the heads.

    Very nice. Harvest – I love this time of year. I always wanted to know how to tie up garlic like that.

    Karen found a couple of online tutorials – I’ll dig up the links for you.
