Got it in Tuesday! (October 23, 2012)
The fresh air and the dirt under my nails was invigorating! The breeze was brisk. It was my first afternoon out of the house and in the garden for weeks. Garlic cloves must be planted as other bulbs, in the fall, root side down. I have not been able to get them in on time before. And, it is not too late if your soil isn’t frozen! I decided to do this entire raised bed in garlic this time.
I met Jackie at our Slow Food National Conference 2012 in Edmonton and tasted her garlic then. WOWSERS. Just as good as Sundog Organics. I never thought that would happen! I was too late to get enough from Sundog to plant this year, so was thrilled that Jackie would ship me a box!
Is a garlic a garlic a garlic? No! I have paid big bucks for good garlic and it has been worth it! I have worked to plant my own over the past few years without much success. This time, I feel success coming on! I will keep you informed in the Spring and the truth will be revealed in the fall!
