  • Curing onions, garlic and potatoes

    We harvested some fantastic looking potatoes and garlic over the weekend; I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well.  

    We need to wait a few more weeks on the onions as we wait for their “tops to flop,” which allows them to store better. 

    We have enjoyed some fresh green onion and bulbs but for the bulk of the crop, we to want harvest and cure them properly so they will store well.
