Garden Harvests

The garlic has been harvested. I dug the cloves with a fork and cut off the tops. Then they were washed in water and the top layer of paper was peeled off. After drying in the sun, they are now drying in the garage on a cloth. I will leave them there for several weeks. It was a pretty good harvest.

The green beans have been growing and I have been freezing them for winter.
