On the momentous occasion of our first ever giveaway, what could we possibly give away besides garlic?

We grew 320 heads of garlic this year. After cleaning, sorting and sizing all of them, we saved the big ones for planting for next year’s crop, and reserved most of the smaller or less pretty ones for ourselves to eat over the next year.

That left around 175 presentable heads to give away to friends and family as we gear up to start selling our garlic next year. I labelled each head of garlic with its variety name and wrapped them in bundles with a loop so the bundle can be hung.

Today we’re giving away one of the bundles. In this bundle there are 4 heads each of Russian Red, Duganski, German Extra-Hardy and Inchelium Red.

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment explaining what type of posts you’d like to see more of on this blog.

One winner will be selected by random number generation. The last time to enter will be midnight at the end of Wednesday, November 21. The winner will be announced on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 22.

Have a thankful Thanksgiving!

    Personally, I think you’ve got a lovely balance in the posts and I always find them helpful. The photos are wonderful, also. Any of your insights on insects and critters that want to share the garden bounty are always appreciated!

    You’ve got a lovely little blog here. I’m a new reader and have enjoyed reading the archives on your gardening and culinary adventures. I would enjoy more posts about succession planting and companion planting. Thanks for sharing!
