An on again, off again journal of my gardening exploits. Starting on an apartment balcony in 2009, we created "Gross Farms" in our backyard on a small lot in Wauwatosa, WI. 2014 and 2015 were successful years for Gross Farms 2.0 in Oconomowoc, WI. Now we live in the tiny town of Kroghville, WI and are embarking on Gross Farms 3.0—bigger and better than ever!

Harvest Monday: July 23, 2012 - Garlic!
The standard harvest this week focused around zucchini, cucumbers, and a handful of cherry tomatoes. I harvested my first papaya squash on Saturday (not pictured).
Although it was harvested over a month ago, tonight we finally trimmed and cleaned our garlic. The harvest is quite impressive. We started with this:
and ended up with this:
Music (3 lbs 5.25 ounces)
Spanish Roja (2 lbs 6 ounces)
I'm very impressed with my first-ever garlic harvest. We have plenty to eat for the year, and to plant for next year!
