A box of garlic...


This, my friends, is what a 25 pound box of garlic looks like. And we have two of them sitting in the house. I, personally, was expecting smaller heads of garlic, but these things are ENORMOUS! So we probably have less rows then we were expecting, which is probably OK.

But here is the nice thing, from big nice healthy cloves of garlic you are more likely to get big beautiful heads next year! If we can keep the heads the same size we will see somewhere north of 300 pounds of garlic, which is a lot of garlic!

We decided to just grow one type of garlic next year, so this is Music, which is really, one of the best garlic we know about.

(And that is farmer hubby's hand, so think about how large that garlic head is!)
