Hey Garlic Growers,
Ever wonder what my garlic looks like before it's trimmed and packaged into your orders?
Here is a quick, informal video tour of the Granary (my garlic curing and storage area):
96 strains of garlic in one room. (bitchute.com)
In preparation for launching the catalogue on August 20th, here are a few details for this year:
Price is $20.00/ pound for seed garlic ( $10.00/ half pound, and $4.25/ bulb)
Eating garlic available for $12.00/ pound.
Bulbils are $5.00/ pkt of 2 umbels.
The Stratford Garlic Festival is back - scaring the vampires out of the City of Stratford again - (or so we can hope, they've run rampant in town for two years now).
Our farm will not have a booth this year, and are looking forward to experiencing it from a different perspective, as shoppers only.
It will be possible to pick up pre-orders at the Farm, on Sept 10 and 11th, if you are in the area, during one of the garlic festival days: Home - Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival (stratfordgarlicfestival.com)
When The Kiwanis club posts the schedule for the Festival, we will be able to set our hours for pick up times on those days.
My plan for the following year is to grow slightly larger amounts of the popular and easy-to-grow Porcelains and Marbled Purple Stripes, and down size most everything else to a seed library quantity.
I may have bulbils available from the "seed library", so that I can continue to share the genetic diversity of my garlic collection, but for 2023, I will not have the same set up for the catalogue, it will be much simpler.
Garlicky Regards, Julie
