The End of the Harvest

As the garden winds down, we find ourselves winnowing out the plants that have finished for the season and cleaning out the beds. The root vegetables are among the last items out of the ground, and there are still some carrots and beets awaiting harvest.

Today, we planted two heads of garlic in an effort to get them to sprout. They’ll winter over in the shed and hopefully produce multiple heads next summer. It’s such a versatile ingredient that having a sizable supply is important. We also dug up the last potato container, which yielded up the big basket in the picture. Given our success with bag and bucket potatoesn we’re doubling the effort next year with hopes of a big harvest.
