2012 Garlic Harvest Begins .........

It's time........
2012 Garlic Crop
to start harvesting........  

Mulch removed from the pathway
mulch is removed from the pathways and transfered to cover the recently planted ginger ..........

Using the cutter bar to cut the roots of the garlic
then the roots of the garlic are cut so that it is easy to lift out of the ground ........

Lifting out to see the size and quality

oh, it's looking like a bumper crop ............


First row ready for lifting out
needless to say we are going to be very busy for a while :)

wow! I'm so impressed because I haven't been able to grow decent garlic in my garden yet, let alone an entire field of it! I hope harvest goes well for you.

Wow , and I thought I grew alot of garlic this year...that's amazing. I have a question for you - when I harvested my garlic this year , some were rotten inside?did I pick it too late or is it just because we had rain near picking time?

Linda said...
