Look what we made!
Today was all about garlic. We pulled up a bed, cleaned it up and then we learned how to make garlic braids!
Mound of dirty, hairy garlic!
Tearing up the bed of garlic
Relatively clean garlic. It’s very tangibly satisfying to peel back that first layer of dirty skin and all is pristine underneath, until I get my dirty hands all over it.
The after math
The bucket of garlic ‘seconds;’ too small/ugly/rotted for braiding purposes.
Garlic still life. Look at those purple streaks!
Garlic Braid! Hang it up and watch it dry and get more purple streaks. It lasts through January!

I’ll dedicate this post to my mother, who surely loves loads of garlic.
