garlic harvest

We pulled the garlic last week... it was a blast!
The ~ 2000 cloves we planted in October yielded a fine harvest this summer. 
Considering the little snow cover we had this winter (less moisture in the ground in the spring for growth) and the very wet June (causing garlic rot for some farms) and the very hot and dry July (causing early maturity and the possibility for small head formation) our garlic looks GREAT!

And, compared to last year’s take, we’re in it! *And safe from vampires, too!
