Garlic Harvest at Queen's Green Community Garden

This garlic braid contains 150 garlic bulbs that were recently harvested at Queen's Green Community Garden.

This garlic was grown in an area about 8 feet by 8 feet.  The garlic variety is a soft neck purple garlic that my parents passed on to me about 20 years ago. They grew the same bulbs for about 30 years.  The soil was supplemented last fall with free compost from the Region of Waterloo landfill and free manure from the St. Jacobs Livestock Exchange Barns.
