The Great Garlic Rescue!

Today at the farm, the interns executed the Great Garlic Rescue of 2014. As you can see in the first picture below, the situation was pretty dire. The garlic beds looked like small forests and the garlic, which is in the process of drying down, was being smothered by the giant weeds.

Before. You can't even see the beds!

In comes the intrepid intern team and three adventurous volunteers and, with a day's work, we managed to rediscover and rescue the garlic beds. The plants can finally breath again and continue to dry down so we have some tasty garlic for our market stands!


Don't they look happy?!

This weekend I'll be out at my family's cabin, so no blogging for the next few days, but catch me over on Twitter!
