The Garlic is in!

I know a few people around the country who didn't have a good year with garlic. My harvest isn't spectacular, plenty of the bulbs are just little, but there's enough there to see us through the year.


Next year I probably need to water them a little more in November.


I cleaned them up and plaited one bunch, then just tied the other bunch with string. Once they've dried out a little more I'll bring them into the kitchen.



  1. Good haul!! Our neighbour's had a bumper crop of garlic, and sent a bundle our way. Outrageous garlic potatoes the other night. Yummmmmm.

  2. They look quite amazing to me - silky skins and the cloves are quite fat. How satisfying to have these bunches of your produce hanging in the kitchen

  3. They look fabulous. My garlic was very sad this year. Too sad to mention any more here. I do love the colour of yours. Nice work.
