[Nov 2011 Update] Thanks to everyone who signed up for our garlic planting service. We are all out of garlic, but will reprise our garlic planting again in 2012

As the days grow shorter and the season starts to cool down, it’s time to start thinking about planting garlic for next year’s season. And for the home gardeners and gourmet chefs, nothing beats the taste of home-grown garlic. Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow and makes for a great gift to share with your friends and family – that is if you don’t use it all up yourself!


This year, we’re pleased to continue with our favourite variety of garlic, Music, as it produced large uniform bulbs during our trials and had exceptional taste and storage qualities. You can see the photo gallery of the garlic we planted in October 2010 and harvested in July 2011 at the link here (http://on.fb.me/pQBw0D).


Garlic does best when planted in raised beds or directly in-ground. With Young Urban Farmers, we can help you in setting up an area for your garden as well as planting garlic. Contact us for a free consultation or continue reading to place your order this fall.
