Garlic is officially in the ground. We begin planting garlic in October, allowing months for the bulbs to grow into full heads of garlic. As we come to the end of our busy u-pick season, we begin preparing our fields and farm for next year's crop. Garlic is generally ready to be picked in June, and planted now, as it requires months to mature.
It's a beautiful process, this image shows a clove ready to be covered with soil:
We plant rows of garlic in our greenhouse, providing you with home-grown garlic you can count on! Just one more reason to shop at the farm.
November finds us busy with preparations for Christmas on the Farm, and finalizing all of our holiday plans. We're looking forward to Christmas trees, creating all of our custom wreaths and as always, our beautiful arrangements of greens!
Can't wait to see you at the farm.
