It's that time of year again --- time to pre-order your local, organic garlic!
Starting with 100 bulbs in 2005, The Cutting Veg garlic crop has soared to an anticipated harvest of 25,000+ bulbs this season. Having managed the crop over the last ten seasons, with an eye towards quality, quantity, and bulb size, I can say confidently that this is shaping up to be the best crop we've ever had. We've planted our garlic in the nicest soil on the farm ---- what I like to call The Golden Acre --- and it is clear that this is the most vibrant looking crop I've ever grown.
While we currently have 17 varieties in cultivation, there are 9 varieties available for purchase this year: Persian, Russian, Korean, Italian, Sicilian, Salt Spring Island, Chinese, Ukrainian, and available for the first time, a stunning French variety, known as Rose de Lautrec. Each variety is unique in flavour, shape, size, and cloves per bulb --- making it easy to fall in love with them all. The other varieties --- Northern Quebec, Former Yugoslavia, Israeli, Japanese, Romanian, Siberian, Argentinean, and Polish will be available in coming years.
