Garlic, Garlic, Garlic!

No vampires in my garden! Pulled the last of the garlic out of the ground Tuesday of last week. A little over 100 bulbs. Most of them in the "over 2 inch diameter" size.
I love the lighting from the evening sun. Gives everything a warm glow.
On the other hand, sometimes you can get more true-to-life colors if you bring your own lighting.
Everything smelled so wonderfully like stinky garlic as I wove the stalks into the fence to hang the harvest to cure. It still smells good, but you have to put your nose up to it a bit, now. On the night of the harvest, the whole garden smelled of garlic.

So that's it for the year. Garlic needs to cure for another month or so, but playing with the garlic is over until around October, when next year's garlic will go into the ground. Looking forward to lots and lots of garlic bread this summer!
