 And I'm off on deliveries!  Even with 49 orders this week, there is still plenty of room for more in the suburban we use for deliveries.

 The 2018 garlic harvest is in the books!  Over the course of 3 days, Mom and I tried to avoid the worst mosquito feeding times and got all the garlic harvested and hung up the in the shed to dry.  The whole shed is filled with the aroma of garlic from 60 bunches of 12 heads each (that's 720 heads total!).  After curing for a week or two, it will be ready to sell.
