we decided to pull out the garlic on the 4th of july so that it would have time to cure outside before we left for summer vacation. some of the heads were so big we had to dig them out because the stems broke. we grew three varieties of hardnecks, all from johnny’s selected seeds.
this is a view from standing on the deck railing of the whole garden, post harvest. we just left the mulch in place. we may plant something (like hardy greens) after the weather cools a little.
