Red onions and garlic

The red onions have been hanging up in bundles and drying for some weeks now. Today Lee took them down and I trimmed them up. I can’t believe we really have an onion harvest this year after four years of trying and failing.

I haven’t trimmed our elephant garlic yet, but the normal garlic is all dry. I moved the last of it into a large onion bag and then weighed it. It weighs 20 pounds. Wow! I think we are set for garlic for the next year.

    I just found your site via Tamar’s, and glad I did! But now I’m all caught up a ready for your next post! I know it’s common for a blogger’s postings to decrease in frequency over the years. But we, the farm blog groupies out there, we love blogs like yours! I’m fascinated and charmed by your farm life (mine is somewhat similar, in SF bay area). Feel free to post at will; you have a new loyal follower.

      Hi Jennifer! Thanks for the kind words. We have no plans to stop blogging, but certain events this summer have consumed most of our free time and motivation. I hope things will return to normal this fall.
