Garlic Braid; Garden Harvest Ahoy!

Hooray! Done with the garlic from my garden.
It's all braided now, hanging happily in my kitchen.
I am TOTALLY safe from vampiric attack, peeps.

I used this video to help me figure out how to create this braid (mine's not so lovely as hers).

I'm also happy to report that I made some roasted garlic, using some of these very bulbs, and have survived. Unpoisoned! (though, certainly a bit more stinky).

Those crazy pumpkins and squash are still growing. They've currently taken over my pretty little park bench. It's their bench now.
I should post a pic. It's kind of scary.

I never get it together to do the braiding before they are too stiff and dry, but you have inspired me so I will give it a go. Was it hard on your hands? I think it's beautiful and yummy looking!

Hey Meredith! The braiding was indeed tricky because of their dryness, but not hard on my hands, thankfully. I'm a pretty big wimp, and if it had hurt I likely wouldn't have completed the braids.
