We went last year, and it was wonderful. I knew I had to go again. I rode my bike to their place, and then hiked up the hill. I was greeted by the friendly farmers, and the sight of gorgeous garlic, EVERYWHERE!
They have heads with the stalk still attached...
Bulk heads in many varieties...
Beautiful garlic bundles ready for gift giving or kitchen decorating.
They also had a tasting area. My favorite! There were so many varieties, some spicy, some mild, all delicious!
I was also introduced to the garlic flower. It is so beautiful!
I was told that these little bits in the flower that look like garlic cloves are what is planted to start new garlic! The heads that were for sale took 4 years to reach that stage, being planted and dug up each year! That's crazy! Really makes me appreciate good garlic!
Here are some of the garlic scapes with the flowers still attached. Very elegant looking.
I ended up leaving with two bags of garlic! Two varieties to try out in the kitchen! I can't wait!
Of course nobody will be able to come near me for weeks, but it's worth the price! I love garlic! Especially when it's grown within a mile of my house! Hurray for local produce!
Please excuse me while I go buy some breath mints.
