I am checking their website but it seems everything I look at is sold out already!

Thanks so much.  I will have to check them out and keep an eye open for when they have some available. Smile

I just had to post this example of how to peel a whole garlic head in under 10 seconds.  Don't know if it works, will have to try it some day.

Last fall I ordered my garlic from Filigree Farms and my garlic harvest was great! I will order from them again this year.

Yolos = the video is great!

Kay, Dunkinjean, it looks like many of us are preparing for this garlic season.  I ordered my from Southern Exposure and it will be delivered in Sept. as well.

I wish all a very successful garlic year (well nine months, depending on your variety)!!!!

Windmere - I thought somewhere you told me you ordered Early Italian garlic.  But Southern Exposure does not carry that variety.  They do have an Italian Garlic though.  Is that the one you ordered.  Did you order any other varieties.  I am thinking about using one of my 3' x 8' beds for only garlic and onions and shallots.  Then when they mature and are harvested, there will still be time for my southern peas.

Yes yolos, I did like the results of my Early Italian last this last season.  As you say, Southern Exposure does not carry "Early Italian" garlic per se.  I think it is the same.  The image of the product matches the description for Early Italian.  Italian late does not have any purple colors to it (from the images I've seen at the Southern Exposure site). 

I really do think it was what I believe it to be.   I'm glad you mentioned it though.  I e-mailed them just now to clarify it for me.  I might keep what I've ordered though because I like its description.  Plus, I finally found organic garlic that I'm pleased with that can be shipped to GA.  There may be other places that will ship organic to us... but I'm done looking.

Windmere, I order online but also will pick up a nice bulb or two at the local organic store.  They are about the same size as the online ones and have always grown great.  Just a thought.

Good point, meatburner. If you have farmer's markets nearby, you can get garlic there and plant it. Can't imagine it's all that different. I do that with dried beans - buy them at the farmer's market and plant them.

Thanks meatburner.  That is a very good suggestion.  I have not seen organic garlic at our DeKalb farmers market, but perhaps our Whole Foods might have some.  Now that you've mentioned it, I will keep an eye out for organic though.

When did you plant your garlic?  Is it hard- or -soft-necked?  How did you make your Mel's Mix?  Where did you purchase the seed garlic?

Last year, I bought some seed garlic from a local nursery; they told me it was a hard-necked variety.  It produced only small heads, which I plan to eat.  On the other hand, My Siberian Garlic (2nd generation), thrived, which is what you see in my photo.

I think you are addressing me.  I made my Mel's mix the traditional way.  Some of the garlic as second generation.  The rest I purchased from a local garlic grower (where I'd purchased the other garlic the first year) but was a different kind (Music).  All my garlic is the hard-necked variety.  I chose that because of our weather.  I thought purchasing my garlic locally would give the garlic a better chance as it would be adapted to our climate.

I am not sure if it was the horrid winter we had or what but the garlic did not grow as well as the first year (or well at all).

cpl100,

That's interesting.  I don't know what other variables might be involved.

Interestingly, the seed garlic I purchased locally produced so-so results, small heads suitable for eating, but not re-planting.

I ordered Musik garlic this weekend, since I've been wanting to try it for a long time.

That's how I feel about most of my elephant garlic. The plants looked tall and beautiful, but bolted early because of some unseasonably hot (95 degree!) weather we got in the very early spring this year. It came out looking more like regular garlic. Oh well, there's always next year.
