The 2021 garlic harvest is complete. Roughly 10,000 bulbs are now hanging in the rafters behind the Tin House, or stacked in the greenhouse to cure. This year’s haul was 25% bigger than in 2020, thanks to the addition of two new varieties—Inchelium Red softneck and German Red rocambole—and thanks to our seed garlic side hustle. We’ve been planting from our own saved seed for 12+ years, but since 2019, we’ve also been working to expand the supply so we can sell it to other Long Island growers. It’s a nice star to aim for, but in practical terms this means scrambling for additional storage space, rafters being in short supply. Lucky for us, Peter’s 2019 season at Featherbed Lane Farm in upstate NY taught him a thing or two about garlic storage.
