Garlic time

The garlic tops had started turning yellow and had lost their umph, and for me it is now or never to harvest this batch! With all signs pointing towards harvest time, I pulled the bulbs. I placed them under roof on a slated rack to start drying.

They will need a few weeks to dry before storing, so will finish the process at the new house. If it appears they are not mature enough to properly dry I will peel them and store the cloves refrigerated, in oil. Although not as big as last years heads, the garlic looks beautiful.
