It looks like my garlic is doing better than it has in a long time.
Today I hoed between some of the rows, sprinkled bone meal around the plants on the rows I hoed and watered all of it. I planted one bundle of onions but have to wait til Vince is done tilling to plant the other two bundles. I ran out of space.
As good as this year’s garlic looks, it will probably be the end of March or first of April when it sends up the scapes (flowering shoot). Then, it will be probably another three to four weeks before the garlic is ready to harvest. So, my guess, I’ll be able to harvest some of it by the first of May. If it all does well, we are going to have a whole lot of garlic!
I’m hoping to freeze dry a lot of it. Then I can make some of that into garlic powder. We used to buy little garlic chips that we would put in olive oil and use as a dip for our bread. Bread . . why did I say bread? Now, instead of sourdough with the deep, crispy crust, we’ll have keto bread with our olive oil and garlic!
We eat a heck of a lot of garlic but I think I may be getting creative with ways to save the garlic this year.
