Garlic Time

We are delighted to announce that fresh garlic is now available at My Happy Acres!  Mild and delicious fresh garlic is one of the most popular herbs used in the world today.  This perennial hails from central Asia and has been enjoyed by many culturals including ancient Egypt.  It is said that the builders of the pyramids were paid in garlic and beer. 

That may not be my first choice for dinner however not enough can be said for the joys of Garlic chicken or Garlic bread with a lovely fresh tomato-cucumber salad.  If you would like a recipe for one of these, please feel free to send me an email or become a follower and send me a comment.

For those that prefer a firmer garlic head, this year's crop is presently curing and should be ready by August.

Oh!  and for those of you who just can't get enough, the Gilroy Garlic festival (also called the Stinking Rose Fest) is scheduled for the last weekend of July!  So mark those calendars!
