Garlic is by far one of the easiest plants to grow. Why more people don’t grow it, I just don’t understand. A good amount of the garlic in North America is imported despite the ease of growing it and storing it here. For me, it is very rare that I even purchase garlic anymore.
This year we will be growing 3 garlic varieties:
Creole Garlic -
Elephant Garlic -
The Bogatyr and Elephant Garlic is being grown for the first time in our garden. This means the first few years it is being grown to expand the seed stock and to be tested. In future years these varieties (if they test well) will be made available for sale through our farm.
The Creole garlic is in its second year of growth and we should have a larger amount available. This means it will likely be available through our farm in late Spring of 2021.
