It started to dry just last week and with our hot dry weather, was ready to harvest quickly.
Despite the 108 degrees Fahrenheit on our thermometer, I harvested it Thursday afternoon. It was too hot and windy to take photos during the process which I covered last year. After retreating to the shade of the patio, I brushed all the extra dirt off the bulbs and carefully laid them in this bin which I can put in the garage easily should we be surprised by a rain shower.
I'll save the biggest bulbs to use as seed for the next crop and store the rest for cooking.
