WE ARE SOLD OUT FOR 2013! Thank you for your support. Please try us again in 2014.
Our garlic is planted, grown, harvested and cured by hand. Each bulb is touched by human hands on its way into the dirt and on its way out! Because of this, we are able to offer you an extremely high quality bulb. We never use chemicals on our garlic or fields. Each bulb is hand-tied, hung for curing and then cleaned and inspected by hand shortly before being shipped directly to you from our farm. Shipping begins mid July and continues through August.
PLEASE ORDER EARLY. MOST QUANTITIES ARE LIMITED.
All orders will ship in LATE AUGUST/EARLY SEPTEMBER for planting in the fall of 2013.
Because so many of you have requested it, we have put together this kit to help those who are just starting to grow garlic. This kit includes the following items :1.) Enough seed garlic to grow at least 20 plants–including at least one hardneck and one softneck variety. 2.) A bag of same all natural fertilizer that we use on our garlic, an all natural (5-4-5) compost blend. We give you all the fertilizer you will need for your 20 plants. 3.) 10 feet of Biotelo’s biodegradable black plastic mulch- we use this to cover our garlic. It breaks down after harvest, when turned into the soil. 4.) Detailed instructions about how to plant garlic and tips on growing gorgeous garlic.
