DSC_1594_4242 It’s garlic harvest time in Maybelline’s Garden.  Farmer MacGregor built a drying rack that will soon be holding heads of garlic for drying.  The garlic was planted on October 10, 2009 with the label promise of maturity in 90-120 days.  Well, almost double that estimate it’s time to harvest.DSC_1596_4244 I pulled the irrigation line off the garlic last evening and will let nature do most of the drying.  Once the tops have browned a bit more, I’ll pull the heads out of the ground and place on the drying racks.  The temperatures will start to get with it and help the garlic tops dry out.DSC_1598_4246 The heads have developed into a nice size and they smell great.

This evening’s events met the approval of my supervisor.DSC_1600_4248 Cat Call – get it?
