GARLIC

WE ARE TOTALLY SOLD OUT OF GARLIC . WE ARE VERY SORRY THERE WILL BE NO GARLIC IN 2019. WHEN WE MOVED OUR BEDS  TO AN AREA WEST OF THE OFFICE WE THOUGHT THE SNOW DRIFT WOULD INSULATE, WHAT IT DID WAS PROVIDE A HOME FOR VOLES TO DESTROY THE CROP UNDER PROTECTIVE SNOW COVER.  WE ARE CURRENTLY MOVING THE REMANTS OF THE COLLECTION TO A MORE FAVORABLE LOCATION AND HOPE TO HAVE MOST BACK IN STOCK FOR 2020

Our policy on garlic is that we will ship the bulblets as we have them and some will be sent in the Spring until our previous Fall’s harvest is exhausted.  Then we will ship the rest of the orders in the Fall after the new crop is harvested.  We have had excellent results with the bulblets sprouting after being stored all Winter.  If you want to get a jump you can start the bulblets inside like tomatoes and set out as transplants.

 

NOTE:  We will be shipping only bulblets.  Please order these on the seed order form this year.  Please remember with bulblets that not every bulblet will grow.  We try to send plenty of extras.  Packets of topsets will vary from 50 to 200 bulblets.

 

 

Marie’s Special-  This very special garlic came to us from our neighbor who first provided us with the start several years ago.  The garlic is the topsetting kind that produces numerous small bulblets at the tops of the stalks in August which in turn can be planted for more plants the following season.  The bulbs on this type are small but very flavorful.  I have had great success by planting the bulblets in the Fall and transplanting the young plants in the spring.  Pkt. $3.50  Certified Organic Seed

Moano Special- A topsetting garlic producing medium sized, very strong flavored bulbs.  Pkt. $3.50  Certified Organic Seed  (Limit 1 Pkt.) 

 

Old Homestead- An heirloom topsetting garlic sent to us by Tom Greenwood of Oklahoma.  Produces much larger bulbs than does Marie’s Special Garlic, but does very well when planted from the topsetting bulblets.  Pkt.   $3.50  Certified Organic Seed  (Limit 1 Pkt.) 

 

Pskem River - Originally from Uzbekistan, 2-4 fat cloves per bulb, strong flavor.  Pkt. $3.50  Certified Organic Seed

 

Samarkand - Purplish streaked clove, rather strong flavored.  Pkt. $3.50  Certified Organic Seed

 

Siciliano - Artichoke type, 10-12 creamy white cloves in each extra large bulb.  Pkt $3.50 Certified Organic Seed

 

Stewarts - An heirloom sent to us from Colorado.  Used for greens and seasoning.  Dual purpose, great cloves and tops.  Very productive here.  This is by far our hardiest and most productive garlic. Pkt. $3.50  Certified Organic Seed
