    Yes, Seed Saver's Exchange just HAD to remind me that now was the time to purchase garlic to be delivered in fall. Here's the order:

    Lorz Italian Garlic (softneck)
    Shvelisi (Chesnok Red) Garlic (hardneck)
    Siberian Garlic (hardneck)
    Elephant Garlic (not technically a garlic, but tasty anyway!)

    Time for you to order your garlic, too?

    dangerouschicken, You're in the Columbia Basin (well, close), how can you NOT grow inchileum, the garlic of the Colvilles. (but thanks for the reminder, I need to order mine now too!)

    I don't order mine anymore, we just save all our biggest bulbs and plant them!
    I just picked most of my garlic scapes and cooked them up for dinner, talk about yummy!!
    I want to try a pesto made with the scapes, sounds so good!

    The ONE desert that sits well on top of a garlicy meal is key lime pie!
