Cleaning and Sorting Garlic

Late last week I had a couple nice, sunny days and I cut tops and roots off the garlic and sorted it for planting and storage.  When we pull it from the field it goes on to racks to cure.

 

 

 

I drag a table over and pull off a bunch at a time.  Then I cut off tops and roots, brush off dirt and sort.

 

 

 

 

The largest, most perfect garlic goes for seed.  I will break up the heads into cloves and Ken will plant them in October or November – that depends on weather, available time and getting a weed free bed ready
