A heaping portion of crow, with a side of potatoes

Okay, so you remember my post from a few weeks ago about garlic braiding?

Well, it turns out I am full of crap and have no idea what I’m talking about.

Okay, maybe I’m being a little hard on myself. I’m only moderately full of crap and I make mistakes…

Somehow, somewhere along the way, something went wrong with the garlic braiding process. The DreadBrewer and I went up to grab some cloves the other day and a large portion of the cloves are squishy, wet, and ruined. WTH?!?!?

So in an attempt to save them – or at least some of them – I trimmed them all out of their pretty braids and put them back under the fans in the garage.

Garlic Rehab

My attempt at garlic rehab

DB assures me it’s not my fault and I didn’t ruin our garlic, but I’m still pretty upset. (Assuming guilt for things that may or may not be my fault or entirely out of my control is a specialty of mine.) I don’t know if it was soaking the stalks or if I didn’t wait long enough for the initial drying or if it was just one of those “shit happens” sort of things; regardless, I’m not a happy camper. I can only hope that we save enough of the harvest to plant this fall, because we can suck it up and buy garlic to eat if we have to.

On a happier note, we harvested the potatoes out of our two potato grow bags and ended up with 8 or so pounds of delicious red potatoes!

Mmmm... potatoes....

Mmmm -potatoes….

With the enormous leeks we’ve got ready to go, I foresee a batch of Potato-Leek soup in the near future! And luckily for us, given my recent ineptitude at crop storage, we’ll gobble these up before they have a chance to spoil. Now if I can just make sure that the shallots and onions don’t go bad prematurely…
