Nicely done. Do you let the tops dry out and braid them together for storage?

Thanks Bill.

I have done in some years, but have then cut the garlic off the stems due to storage issues (ie nowhere to hang them long term). This year I may be able to go back to this method as a couple of months back we converted a nook in our house that backed onto the kitchen into a walk in pantry, meaning I have the space to hang.

Got the Mrs to plat the garlic now that the stems are pretty much fully dry. The good thing is that since we build a walk in pantry a few months back (walling in a nook in an adjacent room and cutting a hole in the existing pantry to access the new pantry) we have the ability to hang them without them getting in the way.

File comment: 2011 garlic harvest - platted into 3 lots by the Mrs. Not quite as good as having the girl she always wanted - but what can you do.

I do indeed. Home grown garlic is just so much nicer than the shite that you buy at the shops. Really can't be compared.

Seem to have a problem with this years garlic crop.
Quite a lot of them have started to send up a long stem as if they are going to go to seed.
I've dug around them and they haven't formed a bulb yet. Had them in since late April.
Anyone had this happen?

Mmm I think you should bend the stalks and encourage the goodness in to the bulbs. Back off the water now too and maybe give a liquid feed.

I didn't plant a crop of garlic in 2013, so this year planted from the 2012 crop. I planted later than I should in terms of time of year (got in at the start of May) and the bulbs were not in the best condition given they were harvested 18 months earlier.

I only planted out 1 bed and so far not much more than 50% of the bulbs have emerged and the plants are looking pretty puny. In any event the real objective of this year's plant was to make sure I don't lose my seed stock and get myself in a position to rebuild my stock from next year.

I've really neglected my garden over the last two to three years, in fact I've been growing nothing at all. The bug is biting me again and I'm doing a bit of work to at least get some of my garden area ready for spring planting of some vegetable crops.

We ate all the garlic I grew last year and now i need to get off my backside and get some decent stuff to get into the ground for this year. Last years was the most successful garlic ihave grown and made me realise how worthwhile growing it is.
