Well things are a go for Wednesday September 9th Garlic Party.. We have the shed all set up to break apart the garlic bulbs and the field is tilled and ready for planting.
So it will be a bit of an informal event this year, but we do have a little bit planned for the day. To start with we have to break the bulbs that we will be planting into each individual clove. Once this is done we can then take them to the field and push them into the ground one by one. Only about 50 000 to 80 000 to plant this year, so not too many. Don't worry we won't be getting it all done in one day. What isn't planted on wednesday we will be getting in the ground over the next week with the help of some local high school students.
I am going to be working from 7am till late in the evening, so feel free to stop by at any time during the day. Our farm is located at the Bowden SunMaze, www.sunmaze.ca/contact.htm. There is a map on the website and you can follow hiway signs from the QE2 out to the farm.
For any one will be coming out give yourself 3-6 hours or more. If you are able to help for a couple hours with the garlic I would be happy to let you test your navigational skills in the sunflower & Corn maze. Also our U-pick fields are still full of flowers and vegetables & at 12:00 and 6:00 we will be cooking up some bison burgers on the BBQ.
