Garlic Update, for those that ordered Garlic, just wanted to let you know that they have been harvested this past weekend and are now in the dryer’s, it typically a week to ten days to cure. Have been informed that the bulbs are quite large, so it will be around 5 to 7 for around a pound, give or take a bulb. So until I do pickup, you can still order some if you are interested. Just let me know. Music or Red Russian are avaialble
Overview of the offer..
Hello to my local readers..
I have a chance to get a awesome deal on fresh locally grown garlic, at 8 dollars a pound, (as you know, it a lot more at the local farmers market or at the garlic festivals, you can pay almost double that) there are two kinds available, Music and Red Russian I am personally going to take ten pounds for my own use and preparing it for the rest of the year.. I am wanting to know if anyone else wants some.. kind of a bulk order, bulk pickup deal.. I am willing to work with you, and make a couple different pickup times and spots. The garlic will be ready in two to three weeks so talk to me..
If you want to have some awesome local fresh garlic for use, great, if you want to get enough to put up your own for the year.. this is the perfect chance to do so.. There is a limit on what is available in regards to how many pounds but its a goodly amount and I will notify when I get close to it, this offer went on my facebook first and most folks are ordering in five to ten pound lots, but you can go lower or higher, totally your choice.
I am already getting some questions on how to age and hold the fresh garlic, so we will go over that in a post and then I will do a post on the different ways I am going to preserve it, a good amount will be used in canning and sauces over the next couple months, some eaten fresh in different ways and some canned, some pickled and some frozen.
While I am not growing this Garlic, I personally know the family that is, they are a hard working local farmers, and I want to see this little side line they are working on thrive and grow. I can say this, if you buy this garlic, not only will you be getting local, fresh but you will be helping support a local farm at the same time!
For those of you that are reading this that might be coming to a certain day event on Aug 10th that I will be at, if you want in on this, let me know and I will be sure to bring it to you at that time 🙂
Otherwise, feel free to send me a email if you have it, or just comment on this post..
