Here is what is left from last year's garlic harvest. Most of these cloves have started to sprout and now that I have new garlic to use, they have gone into the compost bucket.
The garlic was harvested several weeks ago and left to cure in the garage.
First task to prepare these for use was to cut off the stems.
Then to trim off the roots.
Rub well to loosen the first layer of paper covering.
These are nice sized garlic heads.
Cloves are huge.
And I have a lot.
Pile of roots and paper.
This one I peeled a bit more to show the cloves.
Into the pantry.
Now the decision I have to make is whether to order more from Fedco for fall planting or rely on my stores of heads? If I use my own heads will I have enough to last till next summer?
