This year's crop of garlic seems strong enough to last the entire season. It's one of the few staple items we have to buy and it always stings at the grocery store because I know 90 percent of the garlic in this country is grown in California, and that's a long way from being local.

We planted several different kinds back in the fall to find out which variety is best for our climate. With any luck our store bought garlic days are going to be over some time next month.
