Farm Glance: garlic curing strategies

So how many times is a blogger allowed to apologize for protracted gaps between posts before his readers throw him to the wolves?  Don't answer that. It's been a while, I know.  But with my season just about wrapped up and my mind full of ideas for this website, I'm almost certain you'll start to find new posts on something approaching a regular basis again.  Thanks to those of you who hung in there. So like I said, I've gots me some ideas for improving this site, which you'll find out about in due course.  Mean time I wanted to post a couple of reader submissions of their garlic-hanging strategies. Once again reader participation was low.  Which I totally understand--who's got the time and all that.  But I'll continue to post anything that comes in and I encourage all of you to get out there and snap some shots for any of the previous posts.  Just yesterday I received a late submission for the post of readers' various trellising techniques and I just added it to the mix.

Let's start with one from my ol' pal Eric Simons of Bountifield farm in Cawston BC, who is much too busy to participate in his friends' silly interweb shenanigans but whose retired father is not.

Cool pics so far, no?  Imagine how cool this post would be with ten more...editor@theruminant.ca to send your photos.  Would still love to see photos of your chicken coop or a close-up of its best feature.

Lots more posts to come...I promise.  To those of you worn out from a busy season...it's almost done!  Hang in there.
