Eating garlic for Australia

Posted by Alan Singleton on

If garlic eating was worth a gold medal at the London Olympics I reckon the Singletons would be on the plane. When the price went up to $50/kg last year I naturally decided to grow my own.

 

2011 Garlic Crop Ready to Harvest

 

I refuse to buy product that is shipped half way round the world. Not that I don’t trust border bio-security-hey I was once a public servant.

 

Part of the harvest drying in the laundry much to the families disgust

 

 

More garlic drying

 

This year I have planted the garlic a bit early because we will run out in about two months and being careful with my money, I want to get some out of the ground asap.

 

Garlic going in about 5 inches apart with rows every 7 inches

 

The elephant garlic I planted last year ended up about 7 foot tall with a stem thicker than a butcher’s wrist.

 

Did the recipe say ONE clove of garlic

 

 

Planted 60 cloves and 6 elephant garlic cloves at the back

 

In a couple of weeks I will jam in another 30 or so cloves. This will be the second crop in the same garden so next year I will use one of the other gardens for my prize winning crop.
