Field O’ Garlic

Since the slow start in the early spring, the garlic has grown well. In fact, it looks like we’re back on schedule. We anticipate picking the scapes in mid-June with the bulb harvest in late July.

(NaturalNews) Hospital antibiotics have become one of the most over prescribed “medicines” today. As a result people have ruined their digestive systems, and ironically, have lowered their natural immunity to all types of infections in the future.

Garlic possesses potent antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties and is able to help protect and facilitate removal of unfriendly bacteria. It is also very high in natural antioxidants that destroy free radicals, which also supports a strong immune system.
