On Dracula and garlic

Garlic harvest

Overmature garlic head
Last week, I dreamed about Dracula.  At the time, I thought it meant I was supposed to read that classic text, but in retrospect, I think the dream was my subconscious telling me to go ahead and harvest our garlic crop.

When I did finally pull them out of the ground on Friday, a few of the garlic heads had started to split apart, but most will be good keepers.  Our crop is about the same size as last year's...which is to say HUGE!  I guess my family will be getting their Christmas presents in July this year.
