Greetings from the field. Another garlic season has almost come to an end as this week we harevsted 80% of our rows. They all look and taste amazing. We are super happy with this years results especially since we are growing 7 varieties (3 new ones) without any crop issues. Last year we lost 70% due to ripening to quickly and the skins deteriating before we could harvest. This year the skins are solid and looking fantastic. We guestimate we will have the best garlic in Melbourne for the next 8 months or until sold out, at our low price of $3 per bulb.
We also have our red winter cabbage experiment pull through for this week and we are glad to say we are currently the only grower in victoria producing red cabbages. Shops will be importing them from interstate hip hip hooray to us local farmers producing food with extremely low food miles.
