Rick broke up the garlic bulbs, I weighed and counted, did some simple math and decided 1,888 is enough! I have 6.5# of Persian Star which is about 403 cloves, 6.75# (about 337 cloves) of Chinese Pink, and 14# or 1148 cloves of Turkish Giant. Allowing for some the gophers will eat, I should have around 1,800 to harvest. I haven't decided what to do with about 10# of elephant garlic. A restaurant that has roasted elephant garlic on their appetizer menu hasn't responded to my offer to sell them some locally grown. I could just plant my broken up seed stock and hope. Nothing lost, nothing gained. Just corrected my math, it adds up to 1,888 cloves. UGH! Am I crazy or what?

Still canning. Maybe another dozen or so quarts to go, and then I will just have to stop.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
