The garlic is coming! The garlic is coming!

in the fall, we split about a thousands heads of garlic into their individual cloves, tucked them into a bed in the freshly plowed field, and covered them with their blanket of straw for the winter. 

Donunick went out to check on them and their those little cloves are sprouting!  I LOVE garlic. If I had to eat something every day for the rest of my life it’s a close tie between garlic and onions for me. I hope our csa members want garlic, too. But if they don’t, I’m sure I could enjoy the whole crop.  

When we were splitting the cloves last fall there were many that didn’t make the cut for planting- too small, damaged from splitting, etc. I had recently bought some Indian cook books and do you know what recipeI found?  “Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic”. Mmmmmmmm.
