The garlic is harvested….finally!

August 8, 2012

We spent the last couple of weeks finishing the garage…

Nine pot lights in the ceiling just in case I get it for a studio some day.

The hanging rack and fan ready for garlic

…and harvesting our garlic crop


We tied them in bunches of 20. This is the first variety.

Here they are with the tops chopped off and tied in place. You can see that every other bunch is tied to the back side of the rack.

Jump forward…here is the whole crop on the rack…


Very cool to have it finally done! Now they dry for a month.

The other evening about twilight, I looked over to the barn and saw this sight…



It seems we have a raccoon living in the barn and he gets along with the kittens!!

He headed across the driveway-


I was interested to notice that both feet on this side are off the ground at the same time!

He proceeded to one of our sour cherry trees and climbed up…



After that, all I saw was the branches shaking as he helped himself to a snack!

Here is another spot that Max has decided he likes…


Leo (or Spook as I sometimes call him!) is a loyal companion.

I missed the entry ‘window’ for the Houston International Quilt Festival so I will try to get ‘Celise’ entered into the Road to California show  which is early next year. We’ll see how she does there.

    Don’t suppose some of that garlic could find its way to Colorado, ya think? Looks great, and love the racoon. I love this stuff (almost) as much as the quilting!!!!

    Garlic on the racks is really neat! Carol, what is that racoon doing out during the day. I thought they were nocturnal?
