Kendra and I just dug up all the garlic that Ed planted last year, and they look awesome! Ed has been planting successively more and more garlic since the first year of the garden, and except for the initial year, it has always been from the biggest and most prolific bulbs from the season before.
We're drying them out on Mom's porch, and later Ed will braid them into hanging strings for storage through the year. Mom says she wants a string of it. She complained that she's been buying garlic from the store... so common!
Here are a few shots of them drying, and one that broke off. We'll use it right away.
That's my hand holding one of the larger bulbs. Just so you know that this is one pretty impressive crop!
