Yesterday was Garlic Planting Day. Seven Varieties and 2200 heads planted in one day. Each hole dug and every head shucked by hand.
Our favourite garlic story of 2019 was meeting a gentleman from B.C. at the Grimsby Farmers Market who in fact was @benchwineguy Uncle (small world) and a garlic enthusiast. He gifted us with a rare type of garlic named Rose de l’autrec. This will take many years to propitiate enough to sell. But how fun!
Thanks to @ashley.post87 @tteeft and @randonthegram for pushing hard this week to get it in before the rain. @ Mingle Hill Farms
