The next lot will be from the harvest January 2021 and will be properly cured for maximum flavour and keeping ability before we ship them.
Garden has been prepared with compost only and we have fed the crop with 5 applications of homemade compost extract throughout the growing cycle to increase beneficial fungi for disease resistance and to provide nutrient cycling though the soil food web.
We had a great crop this season and are looking forward to process our crop of 700 heads of garlic.
If stored cool, dark and dry, it will keep well for 6-12 months.
Here a few photos of the growing process at KoruKai Herb Farm:
Cloves are grown in soil enriched with compost, autumn leaves and wood chips.
A beneficial fungal dominant compost extract is being sprayed on the crop 5 times to feed the crop, enhance beneficial fungi and outcompete rust.
Crop is looking great in November.
At harvest time in January, the crop is plated and hung for curing for 4-8 weeks.
