more first harvests

Technically, the garlic isn’t ready to harvest yet, but a couple of the plants had already laid down so I pulled them.  This is the first one, and there have been 3 others.

Also had to harvest 3 of the first spaghetti squash.  Would have liked to leave them longer, but if I wanted any of the others to get bigger and the plants to continue to produce, the three biggest had to come off.  They are still quite large enough for the two of us.  Unfortunately, had to clip the vines for 2 which managed to start growing in such a way that they were in the fence. They are going to be hard to get off later in the season!!
