As of today- May 14, 2019
It appears that the store bought (probably Mexican or Chinese in origin) organic garlic did not care for our winter… of the 3 dozen or so cloves MrGillis planted, only half a dozen or so have popped and they are pretty weak looking.
Now, this stuff, the Elephant Garlic given us to by Donna and Wes Lord that they’ve been cultivating in Weston for a few years… Wow! MrGillis thinks every clove sprouted.
So, a huge thank you to the Lords- without you our garlic patch would be a pretty sad garlic wasteland.
This, to us, really is side by side proof, that locally sourced works best in this situation.
Until next time, have a wicked good day!
