Increased Garlic and Shallot Crops

November 4, 2008

2008 has been a great year, forcing Big John to substantially increase both his garlic and shallot plantings. We planted close to 1,000 lbs. of cloves and added a new Porcelain Hardneck, Music, to the line-up…. it’s all bedded in and mulched for the winter. Shallot sets for spring planting will also be available after the 1st of January…. they will go fast. There are less than a handfull of organic shallot planting stock providers in the entire US and Big John is pleased to be one.

Freshly harvested French Red Shallots. Yum!

Bedding in the 2009 crop.
