It is always a delicate balance between allowing the garlic to mature to their fullest and going too far. Lifting the garlic too early will result in undersized bulbs that won’t store well. Harvesting too late and you risk the bulbs splitting through their skins leaving them unprotected and unable to withstand long term storage. Learn the ideal time to harvest and how to cure the bulbs for long-term winter storage.
Root Crop Storage Bin- root veggies like carrots and beets will stay fresh all winter and even grow sweeter in this storage bin.
