Garlic harvest is underway in many parts of Ontario. Hardneck cultivars such as Music are generally harvested when 40-60 per cent of the leaves have senesced and turned yellow.
Once harvested, try to keep bulbs out of direct sunlight as research has shown that this will increase storage life says OMAFRA vegetable specialist Travis Cranmer. Leek moth trap counts have come down in most fields. The third generation of leek moth will likely occur near the end of August and into September.
Here’s a list of garlic festivals:
August 10-11 Carp Garlic Festival, Carp, ON
August 31 Verona Lions Garlic Festival, Verona, ON
September 7-8 Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival, Stratford, ON
September 15 Toronto Garlic Festival, Artscape Wychwood Barns, Toronto, ON
