Time to Plant the Garlic!

Garlic, so much Garlic and so little time!   Last year we planted 48,000 cloves of garlic in 7 varietes.  We're scaling back this year and planting only our biggest and favorite varieties.  Trying new methods of mulching like leaves instead of straw.  Beautiful large Music from Canada, flavorful German Brown, bright Montana Roja and more.   The winter is a good time for us to reflect and plan.  We welcome the hibernation. 

We will be expanding our ground cherry crop in 2009.  The demand has risen for this beautiful berry.  The shelf life is outstanding.  The heritage of this berry is so very fascinating.
