Garlic After Harvest
Fresh garlic must be cured before long-term storage. Braiding is a convenient and attractive way to bundle fresh soft neck garlic for both curing and storage, without buying, saving or storing the all-too-often used alternative: plastic bags. Braids afford efficient use of vertical space in storage, and they make an awesome gift for food lovers and fellow gardeners alike. After harvesting your garlic, allow the stems to wilt for a few days, but do not allow them to get brittle-dry, before braiding.
