It's GARLIC TIME! It's 2 or 3 weeks earlier than last year.

Looks great, Greg! I just went through your gallery. Mine will be harvested soon. Did you sample the edible roots? I washed my garlic last year, but later read that it is supposed to just be dried. Your opinion? Congratulations on such a bountiful harvest!

Looks great Greg. I love grilled garlic with a little olive oil drizzled over it.

I forgot about the edible roots! I should go grab them from the garden where I left them. As far as washing, you see the tub I used. I just basically filled that with water and rinsed off my garlic in it. We have heavy clay black dirt that I try to wash off before I dry it. Rinsing them off when you pull it out of the ground won't hurt anything. After that I would be hesitant to get them wet as you want the skin to dry and sort of separate from the cloves and you don't want mold to form.
