We are in the middle of Garlic Harvest! Won't be at Market til August 2nd

The garlic looks mostly fabulous and large this year! The moist soil from September's big rain, and the moist winter helped the garlic tremendously. There are a few hitches - some garlic nematode that causes rot- but it only ruined about 1% of the garlic. There's always something!
We will be back selling garlic on August 2nd. Or maybe a week earlier or later. Check back for postings on our progress!

The Chesnok Red will be ready to harvest in about 5 days

Using the tractor harvester makes it a lot easier- but there's still a lot to dig!
