We have approximately 2/3 of our garlic planted - woohoo! Dietetic students from Michigan State University are coming down to help on Saturday and with any luck, the planting will all be done by the end of the weekend. Applegate, Inchelium Red, Kettle River Giant were all recently planted. Aren't those beautiful names? Silver Rose, S&H Silver, Legacy Braiding Silvers, and German Red are next. We are still in a holding pattern with the evaluation of our 17 auditioning varieties and waiting for delivery of two new varieties, but even if we end up re-planting all of them, the numbers are small and won't take long to do.
Hope you're all snug and safe wherever you live or were traveling to today.

I bought some of your garlic at the Ypsi downtown Farmer's Market, and just planted it a week ago :) Looking forward to harvesting it- the varities I bought to cook with were delicious!
Glad to here things are well on the farm...we had 2 tornado warnings here at work and my son had 2 at his school in E. Grand Rapids and one tree came down behind us as well as many of the leaves came down, but we are all safe. I can picture lots of evergreens and red bows adorning your barn. Enjoy
