Drying garlic

garlicSeed packets are usually very clear about how to get plants started.  It felt like a real achievement when they grew and produced the goodies. So much so, I’ve found myself resting on my laurels feeling like the job’s a good ‘un and forgetting that harvesting and storing is part of the process.

Checking out neighbours’ allotments it became clear that June was the time to harvest garlic, but then what?  My best guess was to hang my garlic harvest on a clothes rack in the kitchen.  This has been much to the disapproval of our cat, whose sensitive nostrils have been totally and utterly abused over the last week or so.  At least I seem to have found a reputable source in Boundary Garlic Farm( http://www.garlicfarm.ca/storing-garlic.htm ) which seems to suggest that a couple of weeks of this is sufficient.  Phew.  Our cat loves helpful Canadian garlic farms.  He just doesn’t know it.
