I harvested the garlic today, after 4 inches of rain in the past week I thought I better get it out of the ground to start drying. It was a good haul and about 35 of the heads are what I would call really big, another 25 were quite respectable, there was just a handful that were puny for some reason. So we enter another season with a good garlic crop to get us through making lots of tomato sauce and ratatouille and pesto and last us again into the late winter I hope, it's more than one head per week and I think that ought to do us fine.

David has been harvesting chanterelle mushrooms from the woods this week and we will be eating squash very soon too.
