Garlic Season


It does seems early doesn’t it? But the garlic has scapes–those lovely green curlicues that later turn into flowers–and the leaves are starting to look brown, so indeed it is. We stopped watering them about three weeks ago (much to the dismay of the Melissa cabbage volunteers who appeared one day). The Persian star looks the most impressive–large, red, busting out all over. Pictured here is the German white, which seems a little too compressed, but only time will tell. The garlic is hanging in the laundry room, drying in a cool dark place. Will I braid it? What do I look like, some kind of hippie? Actually, I probably will.
