Tom planted garlic on November 9th of last year, and we have just harvested the first of it called Inchelium Red. This is what the company we buy from, High Mowing Seeds, had to say about this variety:
This widely grown softneck was originally saved by a native population in Washington State and found by Larry Geno on the Colville Indian Reservation.
Softneck means it can be braided, and I am thinking of trying it. I am not naturally "crafty" at all, but I think I will still see if I can do it. I've already found sites that tell me how.
Drying it just where we did many years ago. We got 29 bulbs.
We have two other varieties which aren't quite ready to pick yet - Music, and Chesnok Red.
