Garlic harvest

Yay, at last we've harvested the garlic! We now have it hanging in bunches in our garage to dry. Should take a couple of weeks. We're really pleased with the amount of large bulbs we got. Interestingly, the pink skinned variety did not grow nearly as large bulbs as the white. Not sure if this is a reflection on the variety itself, or perhaps the location it was planted. Both varieties have a really intense flavour, streaks ahead of anything I've bought in the shops. Once it's dried, I'll plait some up and post a photo.

Also our red onions are starting to form decent sized bulbs now. Here is one I dug up for use in a salad a few nights ago.
