Garlic harvest! We harvested the garlic at the end of August. We wanted to let it dry for about a month before planting it again for next year.
We have several kinds of garlic. Here’s the ones that have worked well so far:
- Chesnok Red
- Crème de la rosa
- Yugoslavian Procelain
- Persian Star
- Georgian Fire
- Polish Hardneck
- Red Russian
- Spanish Roja
The Red Russian has done particularly well! We planted two full beds of garlic this year (instead of 4). It should be a great amount to get us through the winter and enough to plant for next year. Garlic is such a great crop.
We dried lots of garlic scapes and made them into a powder. It works well and is easy to add to sauces or things like salad dressing.
