Garlic and More Garlic

OK. I harvested all of the garlic yesterday and it is now curing in the basement. In order to get enough space to lay it all out with the tops still attached I had to put my 14ft extension ladder on saw horses. A couple of hundred plants I estimate. One downside is the odor. I am a big fan of garlic but curing that much garlic in your basement permeates the house with the point of making your eyes water at times. Definitely need to rethink the curing part of the game. This is going to take about 3 weeks and hopefully the smell will diminish over time.

On the upside...I don't have to worry about vampires for the next couple of weeks...
