August Newsletter - Inventory Update
Hello Friends! We are cleaning garlic, evaluating trialed varieties, and updating our final inventories online. This year was a fantastic year with lots of Premium sized bulbs and we're excited to be sending out so much amazing garlic. Alaska orders will begin to ship September 1st and all other orders ship out in October.
Last year we trialed Susan Delafield, a long-storing Porcelain variety renowned for its great flavor, huge bulbs, and high allicin content. We've just listed limited quantities available at the link below. We're still working on her photo shoot, but I wanted to make this variety available to you as soon as possible.
We've also updated our inventories of Purple Glazer, Persian Star and Russian Red to allow for 5 lb orders at a more substantial discount. These varieties are top performers for us, and we hope to be able to add them to our bulk garlic list next year.
If you haven't ordered your 2022 planting stock, now is a great time. We still have plenty of stock left and lots of big bulbs to send to happy gardeners. We hope your garlic crops are abundant and your gardens keep you well fed.
Please feel free to reach out if you have questions.

Looking to plant a variety? Check out our garden samplers:
Our samplers feature adaptable varieties that do well across Northern and Southern* parts of the US, they also come with our Guide to Growing Garlic to give you the knowledge needed to get your garlic off to a great start. Garlic samplers can have shallots or 1-pound bags of mixed culinary garlic as add-ons at a substantial discount.
*Southern growers who do not experience at least 6-8 weeks of temps below 40* should vernalize their hardneck garlic by storing it in the fridge for 6-12 weeks
Our hottest Rocambole, German Red has long been a favorite of Northern home gardeners. Great all-around flavor for both cooking and eating raw. This heirloom, hardneck garlic has loose clove wrappers making it the easiest to peel garlic. Double cloves (2 cloves in one wrapper) are common. 8-10 medium sized cloves.
