Garlic 2013

The Garlic Harvest 2013

First the scapes were ready

So The Farmer and The Farmers Wife picked them.
Most of them went to Churchhill Natural Meats for Scape Pesto Sausage.
It was fantastic!

 Then came the garlic harvest

Many tractor buckets full

 The Roots and Stems were trimmed and the bulbs cleaned

 The Farmer moved the garlic patch this year.
Unfortunately the nutrient level was not high enough.
The product is smaller this year but no disease.

 Laid into bins one lair deep to dry.
This year will only add up to 50 bins.

Though The Farmer is a bit disappointed in the size he is happy with the flavour.
