I've been chatting with a few farmers about garlic. The garlic we got last year was a one off and Vicki the organic garlic farmer from Main Ridge has offered to come up to Coburg next Monday with a range of things and lots of garlic. Garlic is so easy to store either in the freezer or in dark places. Once we run out of fresh garlic supermarkets stock imported garlic that has been fumigated and is not particularly good for you and tastes bland. I'm hoping to buy enough to plant and get me through until my garlic is ready to eat.
Vicki will be in North Coburg next Monday May 8 in the evening from 7.00-8.30 at our house 43 Livingstone St. Please bring cash and your own bags, we want this to be a packaging free event. If you really can't make this time and can't find a buddy to come in your place please send me an email and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out: firstname.lastname@example.org
