The ghee turned out well enough. Four pounds up butter made about a quart and a half of ghee. Note: do not attempt to strain ghee through a coffee filter, it doesn't work well and overflows and makes a mess (in other words, there might have been more if some of it hadn't overflowed the coffee filter)! Switched to a fine metal screen and this was more effective.

Garlic- dug it all up, it didn't turn out as well as I'd have liked. Some of the bulbs, particularly the Killarney Red, which was the one I'd grown to keep and eat, are rather puny. It will taste fine, but since you only plant the large cloves, it doesn't leave much to plant if I want bigger bulbs next year. That's what I get for not watering it more often!
