Music has sold out for the 2021 Season.
Try Russian Red
Hardneck-Porcelain type. Porcelain garlic that prefers cooler weather when growing but does well in most of the US but may struggle in warmer regions. Music is a large, pretty bulb with a pink to purple hue and 4-8 easy to peel cloves per bulb. It has a flavor that is spicy with some heat but not overwhelming. Great garlic to use in marinades and rubs, pestos, and salsas. Stores well and will last into the winter. Don't forget to harvest and eat the scapes (Soup, Pesto, Hummus) the following spring or leave a few on to produce bulblets for planting next fall.
1/4 POUND PER ORDER
Separate cloves, plant 2-4 inches deep and 5-6 inches apart with the pointed end up, 3-4 weeks before the ground freezes.
When lower 4-5 leaves have dried. Dry and hang out of direct light in a warm area with food air circulation. After they have dried for 2-3 weeks, cut off the stem, 1" from the bulb and trim roots.
Plant in well-drained, rich soil, amend with organic matter, such as compost. Mulch the garlic 4" with straw or chopped leaves, this helps protect from extreme winter conditions, keeps the soil evenly moist, and controls weeds for next season. Cut off scapes when they emerge (the curly seed stalk that will rise from the middle of the plant) so the plant can put its energy into producing the bulb, not the seed head. You can leave scapes on, producing smaller bulbs and the bulbets from the seed head can be planted for full-sized garlic in 2 years.
