Garlic Harvest

harvest of russian red garlic

garlicI’m not sure what this says about me, but I get really excited about growing garlic. A bit garden geeky, I know. Today was harvest day for my Russian Red. It’s like Christmas day digging up the garlic and see how Mother Nature treated the little cloves I planted in the fall. I must say she treated them very well!

This is only my second year as a garlic grower. Last year I planted 21 cloves in the middle of my flower garden, curious to see how they would do. From June on I dug up a head every couple of weeks just to see what was happening to them under the ground. This year, I had a little more faith that they would actually grow and patiently waited to harvest them.

Aren’t they beautiful?
