With all this rainy weather, the root crops have really suffered in the sodden soil so whilst I knew the garlic didn't even look ready to harvest, I thought I'd better dig them out anyway. It was a poor harvest with a lot of the cloves just rotting in the ground. Washed off the dirt to try to salvage as many as I can and allowing them to air dry under the pergola.
