Harvesting this Year’s Garlic

harvesting-the-garlicFurther to last week’s blog and my request for information on the best time to harvest garlic, I am delighted that many of you have confirmed that it should be planted on the shortest day and harvested on the longest day 21st June.


So a few days late, the whole family enjoyed the exciting task of pulling up those lovely purple and white bulbs.


I planted about 80 bulbs and a good 75% of them are a really good size as shown by my daughters below.


We are now tying them together in bunches and hanging them up to dry.


Next week I will give you an update on my beans and tomatoes but until then ….


Happy Gardening!

    I planted mine a bit late according to your memory aid, will it be alright to leave them in until it turns colder? Also, where did you get the good looking wood for your raised beds. I have a 300yard garden rising steeply from the house and would like to tier it somehow, and raised beds would be a possibility.
