Garlic Harvest is Done!

Here at WeeBee Farms we got only a half inch of rain- but we could see the storms over Boulder pouring down rain (We're 10 miles North of Boulder). The harvest started in late June with the Tzan and Shantung garlic, and was finished on July 12th. The last part was a bit muddy- the digging was easy, but it was time consuming to get the big clumps of dirt and mud off the bulbs.

It was mostly a very successful crop and I'll have lots of beautiful garlic to sell. The bad news is finding disease in one of my plots. More on that in a later post.
