Harvesting Garlic

GARLIC. Last week we started harvesting garlic.

Ah root veggies. Literally the.best.veggies.to.harvest (in my opinion). Carrots, beets, onions, potatoes, garlic–I love them all, because they are hidden, because they are a surprise and because they are beautiful. Dirty white bulbs of garlic, freshly plucked from the ground and hung in the barn to dry, are round and beautiful. They feel wholesome to me in a way that other vegetables do not, and that makes me want to be a more wholesome person.

All for now,

Drew
