first garlic harvest!
The fragrance of this garlic is intoxicating. It's amazing to think I planted a handful of small cloves way back in last November. And here we are in July, finally with some rain and below 100 degree temps to quench our parched soil. The rain is what prompted me to go ahead and get the softneck garlic out of the ground before it became too soaked. The hardnecks still have quite a few green leaves, so I'll let them be for another week or two.
We've had a couple major setbacks the past few days, so it feels good to see that something went right! (even if that something is as simple as some braided garlic to hang in the kitchen).
