Hi Nancy,

Fay and I are planning on planting garlic for the Alishan Cafe this fall. Currently we only use Japanese certified organic garlic which costs a few dollars per bulb. Your essay has helped us and also given me ideas for what to have with my next beer. Thanks Jack


Jack: I am galvanized by your plan and will plant my own garlic as well at SSU!. Call me stupid, but I never realized one should plant favas & peas in the fall. Who's the farmer's wife, now?

Emma Boast

Sounds like a fantastic pairing! I've been seeing bags of new garlic everywhere, so I'll have to give this a try.

Vince Ricci

We are hosting visitors from New Orleans tonight. Perfect timing. Now I'm off to find new garlic.


Emma & Vince: be sure to look for the rose colored garlic, and small heads. Off to Portland, but will be back in a week.
