garlic pulling

Garlic gets planted in the fall, October or so. One clove goes in and then a head comes out later. 

We have given out fresh garlic in the vegetable CSA each week this year. Now it will dry on a airy spot and our CSA shares will include a more traditional form of garlic. 

Our goal was to have enough that each share gets a head each week, and that there is enough to plant for next year too. We might have made that!

Our friend Jerry visited to help out with the pulling. There were several beds that were emptied, and the greens were trimmed, then the platforms assembled: plenty of work. Jerry's contribution made all this possible. A long season of garlic!
