2020 Harvest Begins

We began our 2020 harvest today, and we harvested just under 1/3 of our crop. We have 4 main stations for harvest: digging up the bulbs, cleaning the bulbs, bundling the bulbs in groups of 10, and hanging the bundles in the drying barn. Our goal is to clean each bulb within 1 hour of harvesting it, and we strip the bottom leaf as our cleaning method.

We have a few more weekends of harvest to go! Stay tuned!
