Here is my Harvest for Monday! 
(Even though I did it Sat and Sun)
The top holds the onions from the Garden, not too shabby! but kind of small, the middle holds the Garlic from the Garden, and the blue pan is holding the White garlic from the Box..I at first thought they were leeks, (and so did others), however, after harvesting them, and cleaning them up, I remembered they were from two that I bought when I ran out of prepared garlic, I don't what kind they were except they were very white and so is the harvest.
I have them drying on that "sweater rack"  I got at goodwill last year. Not bad for this "Almost an Acre" farm :o)

Paula, I love garlic in just about everything.

Daisy said...

Good for you, Ginny! I'm sure you will cook up something delicious from what you grew.

Wonderful! How long to you let them dry and how do you store them so that they wont rot? I have never tried this before and after reading this, might give it a try next year!

The Country Cook, I let both dry to a point where the skin is dry...I peel the garlic into a jar I keep refriderated.. and the onions I put into a plastic bag and put into the freezer.I take out as many as I need when making soups,stews or whatever else I'm making..I think with the next batch of onions I'm going to try slicing and freezing them too for many other dishes.

WOW, what lovely Garlic...I sure could use some for my Pesto...
I would not expect or ask you to share your first harvest, especially having to wait almost a year. You have been very determined to grow garlic.
Hows this:put my name at the top of the list for next year...Yes, I expect your other children will want some too. Remember I am your favorite.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor.See you soon.
Love,
Valerie

You don't have to share with me; I don't even like garlic! I am impressed with your harvest, though. :>}
