If it’s October, It Must Be Garlic Planting Time!

Before I wax poetic about garlic again, let me say this:

We’ll be planting garlic on October 19th and 20th!  Come join us!
Sat.,  9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., with a sumptuous farm lunch,
Sun., 1:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. with a resplendent tea time.

It’s been a difficult two years for garlic in the upper midwest: we had a never-before-seen infestation that whupped up on most, if not all, of the growers.  If you want the gory scientific details, go here.

But we’re past all that now, and, all things being equal, we will have more of the world’s best allium ophioscorodon next summer for your table and garden.

Some of the  Survivors: Me AND the Garlic!

We managed to save some of our original Armenian, Music and German Porcelain plants, and we will rebuild from that good-as-gold seed stock.  So glad we were able to rescue their genetics!

We hope to see you the 19th or 20th!

    I’d like to come either or both of those days, but would need to carpool with someone (as usual). Jerry, would you be willing to pass my request along to anyone else who is coming out from the Cities? Thanks! It would be great to see you and plant some tasty alliums.
