Friends of ours who live just down the street from us are urban homesteaders—which means they grow most of their own food in a backyard about the size of ours. Their raised beds are amazing, and virtually weed free. (They’re also fixing up their bungalow as well so I’m not sure where they find the time.)
Yesterday, just in time for Thanksgiving, they dropped off the most beautiful bunch of garlic I’ve ever seen. And on top of that, each is labeled according to variety. They harvested about 320 heads over the summer, forming a wall of garlic on their porch as it dried. We’ll definitely use some of this Thursday but I’m thinking it’s time to make Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic.
