Garlic Crop

Originally uploaded by jollygreenp.
The garlic was planted in the middle of last October and has been making steady progress ever since. Some of the tops were starting to fall over so I have lifted the whole crop. Ann and I then trimmed it up and cleaned off the peeling earthy husks to get the nice clean looking specimens you see here. We pickled a couple of jars of the cloves in balsamic vinegar. I'll report back later as to how they turn out. We have also had some of the broad beans, they are so nice when you have them fresh. I picked them in the morning just before I returned for lunch and then shelled and cooked them as soon as I got in.
