Harvest Already!!!!!


  I cant believe it.  Here we are, another year gone by and our southern softneck is already for harvest.  We cant wait to cure it and offer it again as the first fresh garlic in the US.  The crop looks gorgeous and I know it will taste Dynomite!  It will be a hot few weeks of harvesting and cleaning, but soon the rewards of fresh cloves shall erase all of our aches and pains!


harvest is in!


  All the garlic is in, and i must say it is gorgeous, stunning, and vibrant.  A wwoofer, Leo, helped us with the early variety a couple of weeks ago, and the other two Grant, Trino, and Natalie helped us harvest and clean.  After a week of gorgeous hot weather harvesting by hand in the sun we finally got it all out!  I have been growing two crops of garlic for the last 6 years and one crop at least for the last 12 and i have never seen such an abundant bunch of giant bulbs.  We have Mother Nature to thank most of all i suppose with the abundance of rain we received this spring and early summer, as well as a few human types, you know who you are Kiki!  It is all curing in the Garlic shed and our early variety (Russian Tzan) is ready for sale as it has cured already.
