This morning, I harvested the garlic - it's always one of the hilights of the season as you just never know what you will get. As with most root crops such as potatoes & carrots, the "surprise" factor is always fun.
|Ready to Harvest|
This year, I let the garlic mature a bit longer than I normally would - I had been meaning to harvest it for the past week, but just never got around to it.
I try to harvest the garlic when the bottom 2-3 leaves die down, but this time, the bottom 4-5 leaves were dried up and/or yellow on all the varieties, with yellowing reaching most of the top leaves.
