Garlic Harvest

The Garlic was harvested on July 14th. this year. I usually dry the garlic in the shed but, this year I tried something a little bit different....

Garlic was laid out on the wire racks in the green house, in piles by variety and covered with sheets.

(I spy a very lazy daisy dog...lying in the back yard)
Well, as you can imagine...it gets scorching hot inside the greenhouse even with all the windows and door  open... 

The garlic dried lightening fast.

So, this past Sunday was spent trimming and cleaning all the garlic. A record time for me....I usually put this chore off until Fall.
Now...Oven roasted garlic is in my future.
