It’s Garlic Day!

July 4, 2012

Happy Independence Day. Here at the Suburban Farm, it’s Garlic Day. This morning I harvested 37 heads of garlic.

Garlic all in a row

I can’t wait to cut into these! To prepare the rest for storing, they will be laid out on a long cardboard box—stems and leaves intact—in our basement for a few weeks to cure. That is, if I don’t eat them all first. Garlic doesn’t last long in our house.

I’m not exactly sure what variety this is. Honestly, I planted generic jumbo garlic cloves from the grocery store. I think technically these fall into the soft-neck category.

Did you grow garlic this year?
