Growing wet garlic on our farm in Devon

We took a trip to one of the fields on our farm in Devon to see wet garlic being picked for the boxes.

We laid mulch across the field in September last year then planted the garlic in late October and early November. We used a mechanical dibber to punch little holes into the mulch, and then planted garlic through them.

The field workers pick the garlic in May and June by pulling it out of the ground. They then fold two of them over to make a bunch for the vegboxes.

An easy idea for wet garlic:
Add sliced wet garlic to roast new potatoes about 10 minutes before the end of cooking.

  1. I cannot say how utterly outstanding the travelling kitchen lunch we had yesterday was. Utterly wonderful, and I would hire the lot of them for every event we ever do here, and more over again. The BEST advertisement for the difference in Organic food, and the folk that eat it. 96 strangers and friends in the most wonderfully fun and unique setting, eating food blooming with taste, style and pizazz. Thank you for this inspirational treat!
