Seriously…

A forest of it…

right here in north Ga

(I parked my truck just out of the camera view.)

These are all “California early white”, a basic softneck variety similar to what you would find in the grocery store (only better.) I’m encouraged by the stoutness of the stems this early in the year; I anticipate having some kingkongish sized bulbs in June.

Also planted last fall, I show some good stands of french red shallots, a handful of elephant garlic plants scattered about plus some unknown variety of hardneck garlic saved from last year. I’m looking forward to the smell of all this curing in the warm summer air in late june … .
