Have you garnered crops verb and a noun

Have you garnered crops?

“Garner” has many meanings. It is a verb and a noun. First as a noun. A garner is a granary (granero) or a grain bin (silo de granos).

Now as a verb. It has a number of meanings (ganar, obtener, conseguir, recoger) according to context.
Contemplate these examples:

• The children were helping to garner the crops (… están ayudando a recoger las cosechas).

• Mr. Casado, the Popular Party leader in Spain, needs to garner more votes (…necesita conseguir más votos).

• Mr. Sánchez, the Spanish Prime Minister, is struggling to garner enough votes for the 2022 budget (…está luchando por obtener votos suficientes para el presupuesto…).

• Mr. Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, garnered praise from his colleagues for his hard work re climate change (…conseguía elogios de sus colegas por trabajar…).

So perhaps you have garnered praise for work you have done, you have garnered oats (avenas) for a garner, you have garnered many Ferarris, and are busy garnering support for your favourite political party.
