Stringing the harvested garlic and onions is what I was dreading but I took the plunge and did the garlic last night. I followed a “how to” video on the internet from one of those utterly infuriating folks who make it all look so simple. His garlic is so clean, the stalks never break and it all looked so well presented at the end. Mr garlic threading expert: I hate you. Having said all of that, I did follow his instructions and, as you can see, it worked. Triumph!
The photo below is from my hanging hook where I do the threading. The garlic do smell a bit and need a cool and dark place to hang so as to last out the winter. They thus hang in the larder to be joined, next week, by stringed onions.
