Garlic Harvest

I love garlic harvest time. There is something magical about digging up the earth and finding these hidden gems underneath.

Up the come, and then head to the drying screens to cure.
After a few days the tops are cut off. Then they cure some more.
Eventually the dirt and outer paper layers are removed and then they are ready to store.
Oh, the possibilities!

    Those are the most beautiful garlicks ever. I keep losing mine--I forget to mark where they are when their green tops come up and then before I know it the shoots are gone (eaten?) and I lose them for another year. (OK, in a weak moment I added them to the flower garden, so that's part of the problem.)
