An Entire Year of Homegrown Garlic
We harvested the garlic this week--a week earlier than last year. The heads are certainly less impressive than the 2015 batch, but Matt says its unreasonable and unrealistic to expect every year to be better than the last--and I have to agree. There always have to be off years. There are so many factors outside of our control, like hail storms, for example. So, smaller than last year, sure, but we're still pleased with the harvest. They're still drying/curing in the garage so we haven't trimmed the stems or weighed them yet.
