(The 2020 Harvest & COVID-19)


We are excited to connect with you again this year for our 2020 season.

But first off,

We’d like to say that we hope you, your loved ones, and community are remaining healthy and positive. 

Events of enormous gravity and change have been unfolding at a breakneck pace. This makes it difficult to sift through all of the information, and new protocols coming at us. 

It is touching every country and all peoples, so it is truly “pan” in scope. 

One of our colleagues sent us a link to the website which outlined the top 10 purported current shortages brought on by the pandemic.

Number 3 on the list? Garlic.

We certainly are receiving surprising demand from all sizes of grocery outlets, and off the street for garlic supply. 

The reports are mixed as to how long the shortfall could continue. 

Please note: there is a limited supply of Clean-seed Music (porcelain) and 1st generation roundels. These are produced through our clean seed partnership program with the Northern Spud Unit and University of Guelph.
If you are interested in Virus and nematode-free Roundels directly from the Lab, please send a request to us for more information.

At August’s Harvest, a new generation of garlic growers, production, and business employees are making their mark!  Reicza (my daughter) has stepped up to the plate taking on the role of General Manager, assisting us in a big way by streamlining administration and day-to-day operations with our office manager, Tamara.  Brendan has joined us in the sales office, bringing fresh ideas and enthusiasm when it comes to growing our business. Andrew is our head of production, harvesting + planting, and the results are showing.  Lawrence, Rena & Caitee are working on our Garlic365 Program steadily in the greenhouse, growing green garlic and black garlic year-round. In the packing shed, Bikram, the Susans’, Darlene, and a host of other talented individuals are responsible for getting our garlic to you.
I would also like to give a shout out to Travis Kramner from the University of Guelph, Ron Evans
from IRAP, and my fellow growers Felix, Jeff, Norm, Ian and Nathan – an exceptional group to be
working with!

Thank you very much for your patronage over these 30 + years! Your confidence and re-orders have
allowed us to build this business, which we are so incredibly proud of! We appreciate it!

On Behalf of Team August’s Harvest
& Warren Ham

Porcelain | Music (4-7 Cloves)

A very cold hardy plant, described as slightly spicy, with a porcelain fructose flavor. Here in “the idea of North” it is the most common, and essentially “The Staple” garlic variety. Easy to grow, it produces between 4 and 7 big-ass easy to peel cloves per bulb. Most years with shiny-white outer sheath and some pink to brown tinged clove skins, depending on the season.

Porcelain | Norquay (4-7 Cloves)

Big Boy – Big Gurrl Garlic, with regards to neck size, plant size and bulb size. 4-7 larger cloves with mostly one in the middle extra. White skin, lighter to a light rose clove wrapper, and the porcelain high fructose flavor profile, with all the winter ready attributes of porcelains. Matches the tune of Music in every way.

Marbled Purple Stripe | Svea (5-8 Cloves)

A contender for best discovery for sure. Strong hot garlic, 5-8 cloves often with lots of red to purple colour on skin and clove wrappers, depending on the winter. Lots of fat cloves like Music and Norquay. The “chunky tuna” of the porcelain world. Thrives in cold climates; a great choice for those in cold  winter areas. Easily produces on par with any porcelain.

Purple Stripe | Jachlo (8-12 Cloves)

Vigorous good sized robust intense purple bulbs, collected in Eastern Europe. Outer skins bursting with purple colour. The wrapped cloves retain the light chocolate – violet colouring of the outer wrappers. Flavour said to be fiery but with a mellow and smooth aftertaste. 8-12 cloves. Ready to rock through winter. Every year we grow a bit more! A contender for best yield.

Rocambole | Legacy (8-12 Cloves)

Generally, it is said to make lips quiver more than other hard necks. The bulb will produce 3-4 larger white skinned clove among the 8-12 on the bulb.
Depending on soil type a reddish brown, to purple brown clove skin underneath. Matures slightly at odds with porcelain, lower to the ground
squatter plant.


  •  Identify approximate equivalents between bulbs, pounds & cloves!

Tricks of the Trade & Wisdom From The Garlic Mavens:

  1. Make sure the cloves are hard and solid. Plant the individual cloves September or early October.
  2. Garlic likes sun and water.
  3. If possible plant in a raised bed of about 4 inches to give the bulb uncompacted soil, and to be above standing water should there be excessive rain.
  4. The cloves should be planted root plate end down, 2 inches deep in well-drained soil, with high organic matter.
  5. Spacing of 5 inches on at least one-foot rows allows adequate sunshine.
  6. Plant in lea of windbreaks or mulch. This lessens winterkill by inhibiting prevailing freezing winds.
  7. One inch of water a week until the scape or flower is harvested, and then no water would be the best scenario. (however, garlic is hearty)
  8. Harvest the scape or flower 10-14 days after it appears and use it to cook, cook, cook!
  9. Harvest bulb when plants leaves have died back by 35%.
    (approx. 3 weeks after scape removal) Bulbs will open if left too long. Dig from ground, hang and cure for at least one-week prior to use.
