.We seem to grow pretty good garlic here on WillowTree Farm! Every year we choose the biggest and best cloves to use as seed because those are the most successful in our soil. Most of our crop was Russian Porcelain but we had a few Spanish Roja too. This Fall we plan to add a newcomer Persian Star - a really beautiful purple stripe variety that we got from Tara at Villa Verde (the stall beside ours in the Garlic Fest photo above)
This year I'm also doing a small experiment. Some of our garlic grows with only 2 large cloves per head so I'm going to plant some of those cloves and see if they also grow into 2-clove garlic heads.
