We are in the last few days of garlic harvest and have a good sense of this year's crop.
The good news is that the Chesnok Red, Amethyst, Siberian Mild and several other garlics look great. The bad news is that a weather event in February ruined most of the "early" garlics like Inchelium Red, Tzan, Shantung Purple and many more. (Feb 1st was 67º, when the early garlics were poking up, followed by -14º two days later.)

|Tiny Tzan rounds|
All in all the crop is at 50 percent of the usual quantity. As a result we'll be selling fewer days starting August 17th and going to early October.
