Harvest Monday: GARLIC

photo 2-2

Here it all is! I have learnt some good lessons for next time. I planted all the cloves I had, instead of just the fat ones. This led to lots of small heads of garlic. Next time I shall plant in raised beds where the soil is more fluffy, and only the fattest cloves.

The Purple Monaro was by far the most productive. But all in all, a pretty good first garlic effort, I think! I’m going to cure and plait the nice fat heads, and peel and freeze the rest.

Head over to Daphne’s Dandelions for more Harvest Mondays.

  1. Very nice! I harvested my garlic last weekend too and am just waiting for it to wilt a bit so it is ready for plaiting. I must keep an eye out for purple monaro as it looks like a good cropper.

  2. Garlic is so satisfying, isn’t it? Yours are beautiful!
