I think it looks great!!! After a feeble attempt at breading, I just ended up wrapping some twine around mine. Your bulbs are nice sized too!
One of my favorite things! A beautiful photo! You should frame that one for the kitchen :)
Looks wonderful! How long does garlic last like this? Do you store it later and if so where? We can't grow garlic in Florida or regular chives...too hot...but I do have lots of garlic chives.
Softneck garlic has the longest storage capabilities (according to what I have read) nearing 12 months or so, but this is my first harvest....so stay tuned! I will most likely just leave them hanging somewhere out of direct sunlight and hope for the best.
Kelly, yes, the softneck garlic will keep a year, I have had mine all year hanging in the kitchen. I have never grown hardneck garlic, am wondering the advantages or taste difference? Is it stronger?
I think the actual clove count size is different, along with the flavor.....and it does not sore as long (supposedly). I believe the hardneck is also hardier/easier to grow, especially in the North. I am all about best flavor and storage life so I went with softnecks. Then I discovered garlic scapes so now I have a little bit of both, but I don't plan on eating my hardnecks this year, the cloves will be used for seed only- bring on those scapes!!
