a wannabe garlic farmer

A couple years ago I decided I wanted to be a garlic farmer… That dream hasn’t quite come to reality but I did convince my parents to let me plant garlic on their property and I got Lauren on board with the plan. Last fall after buying red Russian garlic from a few sources we headed up to our parents to plant garlic in a freshly rototilled (thanks dad) garden. 

The garlic has grown well so far, we have only had to weed it a couple times and besides that have ignored it allowed it to flourish all on its own.  It has just produced scapes that we cut off this morning.  I plan to make garlic scape pesto this afternoon.  Here`s to hoping that the garlic bulbs are growing big and tasty down in the soil!
