New Garlic

We've been using the last of the garlic bulbs from last summer's harvest. By now the garlic cloves are rather dry and much less flavorful. Garlic scapes -- the curly flower stalks -- have served as a stand in, but still not quite the full flavor of a fresh bulb. So, when I visited my parents at Winterberry Farm the past two days I pulled a few bulbs of the new crop. Aren't they beautiful?!

In another few weeks we will harvest the whole crop of nearly 400 bulbs, with the biggest bulbs saved for the fall planting.
