It’s that time… the garlic has been drying for a month, more than needed in the new drying shed, but the weather has not been cooperating.
In general, the batch of garlic type comes off the drying rack, gets its top and bottoms cut off. They are counted, then weighed en masse so we can calculate the average and not have to weigh individuals, and then size them in general with a sizing board (known size holes in a plywood board).
Then they get put into a paper bag marked with their type and number, and then go into the cold room.
In a few weeks we will go back into that cold room and select seed for planting in late October/early November.
