For 2017, we will
have six garlic varieties: Music, Spanish Rojo, Rose du Lautrec, Blossom, Metechi
and German Red. These are all hard-necked varieties of one or the other
persuasion (Rocambole, Purple-Striped, Creole). We had three sources of
seed garlic: Harmony Farm Supply in Sebastapol, Fillaree Garlic Farm in
Oregon and the rest from Peaceful Valley farm supply in Grass Valley.
Now getting all those cloves in the ground is a top priority. Also on
tap this fall is an expansion of the green house and upgrades for the
shade house as well as the addition of 8 or 10 more solar panels onto
the barn roof. I'd also like to better insulate the cool room and
freezer room. Hmmm .... guess I better get busy! Next season will be here in the blink of an eye!
