Harvesting the Garlic...

Yesterday I harvested half of this years crop of garlic, the rest will do the rest next week... 

This is the first year that a garden wasn't planted so no beans, carrots, lettuce and such, the garlic was planted in November  and it paid off with beautiful plants. Last years garlic were small... so I am grateful for such a crop.

Garlic - love to share!

After way too long I fixed the gate. Used cedar posts, my log tongs to pull the old concrete, blue crush to set the new posts. No concrete this time, blue crush is limestone and packs well.   This was a fun project and took a couple of days to finish.

Leaving you with some of my wife's flowers.


  1. Rob the two of you have such beautiful gardens! The yield of the, how large and pretty it is! I have always loved visiting and seeing your wonderful work...thanks for sharing this post!
    Warm Wishes,

  2. Your wife is growing some beautiful flowers; I especially love the blue ones. Thanks for sharing.

    Happy Blue Monday, Rob.

  3. your garlic is awesome! love all of the lilies and hydrangeas very pretty.

  4. Gorgeous garlic! I too did not plant a garden this year. I have many ideas for the next growing season. Let's just hope I can get a few of them started.

  5. Great to see garlic grown.

  6. Your so lucky to get a good crop of garlic I redid my garden area this year and couldn't plant any last fall or in the early spring.

  7. Beautiful flowers! You and Louis Dean ALWAYS have a project going on!!! Seeing the picture of your truck made me smile. Louis Dean just came in from unloading his! My step son grew some beautiful elephant garlic. He sent some to us and I need to use it. What do you do with yours? Dean wraps it in foil with butter and salt and pepper and grills it. SMELLS heavenly and taste just as good!!

  8. Love garlic on most everything. Never had fresh like this tho. Your wife has some very pretty flowers.

  9. Hi Rob, your wifes flowers are beautiful! I love cooking with garlic. One day I was on my way home and a house down the street had garlic plants out by their fence with a sign that said "free, take some, leave some for others." I stopped and grabbed a couple but never did get them in. Darn, regretting it now! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  10. You have a marvelous crop of garlic - great size! We have had so much rain that we have been unable to tackle garden projects - I can just imagine how glad you are to get your gate fixed - your wife's flowers are gorgeous - beautifully done in a collage! I am delighted that you shared with Home and Garden Thursday,


Thanks for your kind comment.
