We had a successful garlic planting weekend at 5 Sisters Organics Farm in Bemidji Oct 12-14, 2018. We planted approximately 9,000 cloves with many new varieties that we are excited to try!
Last year when we planted, we were in sweatshirts, but this year it was 30 degrees! Growing up in Northern Minnesota, we learned that we never know what the weather will bring, so we just need to innovate and work with it! It was cold, but it was still a fun family planting weekend!
We will harvest the garlic scapes in June 2019, harvest the garlic bulbs in July, and we will be ready to sell our garlic in August! In the meantime, we will post recipes and organic lifestyle posts here. Stay in touch!
