Garlic, Harvests

Copy of 125

The garlic in the back side of my garlic bed (Music) is ripening early. I have been picking lots of scapes and they have been delicious. As leaves yellow, I have been pulling the garlic. I like to pull them when 2 or 3 of the bottom leaves are yellow or brown.

I’ve started underplanting the garlic with small bok choy and summer crisp lettuce seedlings. So hopefully, as I pull the garlic, the bed will gracefully turn into a bed of greens.

I also have a couple rows of garlic in the front of the bed that are ripening much later. This is a “variety” that I’ve saved for years now. I’ve selected the biggest ones for replanting from my mix of garlics, some from the farmer’s market, some Duganski. I don’t really know what variety it is now.
