So here it is - my first garlic harvest
I dug them up a week ago and stored them under cover to dry off. Today I cleaned up the bulbs.
King of the crop has to be the one "Elephant" garlic:
Some bulbs had started to split:
but most were well shaped. The sand I added to the planting holes was still in evidence. I will definitely be doing the same in future years.
All in all a good experience in a terrible year.
