The garlic we planted in late October 2012 was ready for harvest this week!

We harvested 119 bulbs of garlic that are now drying.

We shook dirt off of the roots to clean them up then sorted the garlic in plies of small, medium and large.

Garlic was then bundled and hanged to dry.

After finishing harvesting the garlic, we headed over to the UTSU Gardens to harvest green beans!
