It's been a great year for a garlic growing, and by now you should be drying the Red German or Bogatyr that we gave away last year, or maybe even enjoying it! We'll be accepting full heads of either variety through September 19. Please bring your bulb to Main in a paper bag labeled with your name and the vareity. We've had a few returns already and are excited to share with others.
