We were blessed with a great crop of certified organic garlic! Below are some photos of some of the process of growing and harvesting.
There are three different garlic bulb varieties. Two are hardneck, Vietnamese Red and Amish Rocambole. The softneck variety is the Inchelium Red. Our garlic has been tested NEGATIVE for Garlic Bloat Nematode from The U of M Plant Disease Clinic.
Last but certainly not least, the Amish Rocambole hardneck variety has a very strong garlic flavor!! (Thus you don’t have to use as much in your recipes!!) 🙂 Very large individual cloves on this variety. The Rocambole garlic bulbs don’t store as well as other garlic varieties, but the Amish Rocambole stores the longest of the Rocambole varieties out there. About 6-7 months of storage if kept in a cool, dark, dry and well ventilated area.
