Taos Sembrando Semillas harvest garlic

On the evening of Friday, July 6, Taos Sembrando Semillas members Andrew and Samantha Mascareñas, Martin Cardenas, and other semillitas got together to learn about garlic harvesting and storage from mentor Victor Mascareñas. We learned that garlic is ready when you can see purple coming through the seed scape on top. The garlic then needs to be hung in a cool, dark, airy place for two weeks to curar. It is then ready to eat, store, sell, or plant again in September or October.
