With our digging forks we dug
And with our hands we tugged
Unearthing garlic on a sunlit morning.
We pulled up Zemo, then some Jack
Taking full wheelbarrows to the barn
And bringing empty ones back.
We harvested it all after harvesting four rows
With eight people it’s amazing how fast it goes.
Then we tied with our hands
Bundling garlic with twine strands
Stringing them under the old barn roof.
Some of us tied knots
While some of us hung.
Some worked and talked
While some worked and sung.
We hung up hundreds, and more and more!
Til leaves and fallen cloves littered the floor.
Now admire! A morning’s work is done!
Who knew that garlic could be so much fun.
