I harvested our garlic this afternoon. It is remarkable how much pride one can feel pulling something out of the ground. Sure, I planted the garlic last autumn. And I did a lot of worrying about them in the last nine or ten months. But they did all the work!
I’ve got the 20 cloves drying in the garden shed and I can’t wait to try them in a few weeks. I have a feeling that the first garden is the best–everything is exciting!
