Vacation!

This past weekend was a wonderful break from the usual life on the farm - we went to a family wedding in Kentucky. Unlike most of our trips, it was only a 5 hour drive - we didn't leave at 2 am or drive the whole night, it was really quite luxurious. The wedding was beautiful, we got to see family we hadn't seen in a couple of years, and even had time on the trip home for an extra stop. We went to Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville and took the walking tour.

Garlic Harvest

The garlic is ready to come out, we started harvesting about 2 weeks ago.  I have two varieties that are earlier than the other two, the Elephant and my house blend of Chet's Italian Red and Inchelium Red (they look the same, and the first year I grew them I accidentally combined them).  We started pulling the red first, I like to braid them in large braids (50-100 bulbs) immediately, just for storage purposes.  Later, I will take a few of these big braids apart and rebraid them into smaller, nicer braids for sale.

Mmmm, Scapes!
