Signs of Spring

A wonderful sign of sping was a nice bright green slips, a great beginning of our garlic feild! In the fall Rob and the boys planted 2000 garlic seeds (which is a bulb of garlic split into cloves- then planted one clove at a time). We choose to go with Hard Stem Gralic because it does very well in this area and because of it's demand. We planted to types of this style, White Music and Rocamboly. Both are full of flavor but I think are rather different from eachother. If all goes well and our rainny spring isn't to overly wet they will continue to grow like they are now and we will have a wonderful crop. We love garlic and hope that we will help others to love it too! Our hope to find a good local market for this garlic. This is just one of the many things that Bakers Acres is working on for the up and coming future!
