Garlic for planting    (Posted Wed, Feb 2 '11 at 01:20 UTC)

Hey,

I'm looking for any extra garlic cloves/bulbs for planting. I would like to try a spring crop against most opinions as I have seen it done before but am having trouble finding it at this time of the year. Willing to pay for shipping and a fair price per pound on any garlic available. Thanks

Just call or email please.

I could sell you a pound or two, but I suggest you get some garlic cloves from a local farmer in your area (I am way up in the Pacific Northwest). You should be able to contact someone from a farmers market or just start calling around to local farmers.

Catering to the unique Ferndale perspective.

I always just plant what I buy at the grocery store. Where I live the quality of produce is always so bad a head of garlic will go bad before I can use all of it, so if the season is right, I just plant what I don't use for cooking. If you want organic garlic, just buy cooking garlic from an organic grocery.

Thanks for both of your tips. Ultimately I will order some decent garlic from a good source.such as a seed saving group to try to keep a rare variety in use from the Va/ Carolina/Maryland area.
Until I find the right few crops to keep in perpetuity I'll take anything! So I would appreciate being able to purchase some of your garlic from the north west. I'll message you to discuss a price and shipping.
Grocery store...sure enough there will be garlic in there but I am hoping to grow two 100 foot raised bed rows with either three or four rows of garlic within each one.
Nevertheless I could grab a few choice ones should I find them on sale at our local grocer. I will go ahead and get organic ones though as I feel they will respond better to our organic fertilizing methods since they at least have not been raised on synthetics already.
