The garlic plantings are complete. This fall, we planted 241 pounds with an expected yield of 1,193 pounds. The planting began on October 8th and finished on November 3rd. The process begins by taking the cured garlic bundles from the drying shed and cutting the bulbs from stems. And then, just prior to planting, the bulbs are cracked open (outer layer of parchments removed) to separate the bulbs into the individual cloves. These cloves are then sown into the soil. After several iterations of this process, the end result is the planted garlic field shown below.
