Small garlic test harvest.

Successful I'd say, pulled up a few that were in the way of more parsnip seed sowing. They look very promising, these hadn't started to flower as yet. Fat stalks near the bulb did not necessarily mean the fattest bulbs either.

I pulled them out and brushed the dirt off and left them to dry in the sun for the afternoon.
Keen to grow lots next year, need about 60 for a year, plus they look great plaited and hanging around keeping the vampires at bay.

edit on Monday:
Just took a photo of one of the garlic flowers that are still growing, it looks like a small version of the bulbs down below as it struggles out of it's case.

p.s. the smaller varieties of tomatoes are just now beginning to go red!
