July 26, 2009 – Garlic Harvest

The garlic harvest starts in earnest today. Garlic is a favorite crop, in part because it is planted in the fall and opens up garden space in July for a cover crop to improve the soil.

Most of this garlic is headed for Wheatsfield Grocery in Ames.

It’s been a good year for garlic as demonstrated by this bulb.
