Its time to harvest Allium’s
Its a great time to start harvesting your onions and garlic. Wait till the neck of your onion dries out and folds over, you can then dig them up and leave them to dry in the sun. If there is wet weather leave them to dry in a cool shaded place. Brush off the worst of the soil, we don’t clean with water until use as this can sometimes bring on rot.
We also start to harvest garlic when the stem dries and leans over. We string a bunch of garlic up in a cool back room or garage. Once the neck has fully dried the garlic can be stored in the kitchen in a cool place ready for use.
