Everything from Iowa is big, especially Iowa Dave's

Garlic, from his brother's farm. I was sweating crossing border with this contraband inside my trailer. It could pass for an onion, it is so large....one clove is about the size of an entire regular bulb.

That will put hair on your chest. And you haven't had good sweet corn until you've had Iowa sweet corn. Loren

An ag inspector searched my trailer when I came across the border after the rally.

Garlic

Jim:
We went over to Chilliwack and camped at Cultis Lake for two days and crossed the border on Wednesday. Having been relieved of three small potatoes two years ago I answered the query about fruits and vegetables with great certainty as I had nothing like that with me. It was about that time that I thought about the garlic I had given you and kinda hoped however unrealistically that you had consumed it all at Osoyoos. Glad you made it ok. I'll have more in the fall I think, so hopefully we won't have to make another clandestine exchange. Glad you are enjoying it. That was about all I had left from last years' crop.
Dave

Locally we get some nice big Russian garlic grown in the Fraser Valley. Wonderful flavour that doesn't overpower.

I'm not a fan of garlic, with one exception - Red Sulmona. Unfortunately, it's hard to find outside of Italy.

Garlic

The garlic my brother grows is not the Elephant garlic variety. I asked him about it once. The "seed source" he used came from Johnnys Seeds in Maine. About 10 years ago while on a vacation in New England he made a special stop at Johnnys and walked out into the field to meet him and discuss gardening. He the bought like 8 or10 cloves for like a buck apiece and brought them home and began to grow garlic in his garden. He told me he grew 600 plants last year. He plants them in late October or so and mulches them up big with White Pine Needles. He told me today he was taking the scrapes off of this years plants this afternoon and the plants looked pretty big for this early so he was hoping for another banner year. My grandmother and grandfather were subsistence farmers in Tama county Iowa. They were great growers and so was my mom and dad. We all have a green thumb but mine got covered with axle grease, pine pitch, hog blood and fish slime and never developed like my 2 brothers did. Look up Johnnys seeds on line. It's quite an operation
