August 22, 2020 we will open our garlic season for market
Shown below is our garlic field that was planted in October of 2019 and will produce the garlic for the 2020 season. The Autumn and Winter has proven to be a roller coaster ride of cold/warm temperature swings. The straw mulch you see on the rows above should help keep the soil temperatures constant and minimize and freeze/thaw ripping and tearing of the young garlic cloves that are in the soil.
There are no guarantees when farming, but we always hope for the best.
