If you have peeked into the greenhouse during the last week, you’ll have see the garlic harvest. This week, we’ll begin distributing it! As we have done in the past, each sharer will get their entire share of garlic at one time. Here’s how to collect, cure and store your garlic supply:
- We have a separate sign-in sheet for the garlic pickup, so we can make sure everyone has received their share. When you take your garlic, please check off your name.
- If you are on vacation and giving your weekly share to a friend, have them pick up your garlic, too, and get it from them when you return (we can’t hold it for you).
- The garlic can be used right away or cured for longer storage. To cure garlic, leave the stalks and roots on and let it sit or hang in a dark, well-ventilated space or outdoors, in a shady breezy place, for 3-4 weeks. Tops can be braided to make hanging easier. Once the tops and roots have dried up you can cut them off and store the garlic in a cool (32-40 F), dark, ventilated place for a few months.
Thanks so much, and be well!
