More & More Garlic

It's garlic harvest time around here. (60 miles North of San Fransisco.) Here's the Garlic Guru with a fist full of garlic. Until he was 66, Chester Aaron had 60 raised beds 4' X 10' for his collection of up to 90 varieties of garlic. At 67 he double stacked his boxes into 2' tall boxes. Of the myriad of choices I still favour the 'Creole Red' pictured here. A robust flavor that's rather spicy hot. Like all plants there are dozens, if not hundreds, of opportunities.
