It’s out of the ground! A rare problem to have but we have had a lot of rain, even for spring, and it’s supposed to start raining again in the morning so we got out early and dug the rest of the garlic.
The ground was much wetter than we had preferred it to be when we dig the garlic so we left it outside to dry a little. This evening, we’ll cut the tops, rub a bit more dirt off it, and move it to the inside drying racks.
Having a garden is great for getting fresh produce, but oh, how I love seeing nature perform! Plant one little clove of garlic and get a big bulb, plus the tops, plus look at those massive roots. That amazes me.
Tonight we’re grilling steak. I will clean these up – cut off the roots and tops, peel away a few of the outer layers, drizzle them with olive oil and roast these two bulbs. We’ll squeeze the roasted cloves of garlic onto our steak.
