Garlic For Sale
We use a bed lifter Rick built for our tractor. The long spade push deep into the soil to go underneath the garlic bulbs and lifts them up. Once past the the bulb the loosened bulbs are set back in place in the row. We then go through and pick up the entire plant, the garlic leaves and bulb, while shaking off the soil from the roots.
We then collect all of the garlic bulbs with stalk into open air totes, then tie the garlic into bundles to hang dry in our shade house drying barn.
