Harvesting garlic

Last year in October I planted out some bulbs of garlic in the veg patch.

Yesterday, some nine months later, I was able to pull the fat bulbs from the ground.

They are a mixture of ordinary garlic that have come up tight and hard, and elephant garlic which are about the size of a small fist.

Most of it is tied up in bunches and hanging up in the greenhouse to dry but I have brought two bulbs into the kitchen to cook with and the house is now filled with the smell of it.

Last night I cooked Galen a Minute Steak from The Farmer’s market. It looked good enough to stay in for.
