High garlic prices??
I am wondering whats up with garlic this season?? How are the prices around the country? I am experiencein very high prices at the wholesale auctions, 2 weeks ago I was getting $36 per peck,thats $180 per bushel. this past tuesday I received $45 per peck; I am taking a bunch more tomorrow and hope the prices are at least as good as tuesday. I wonder what is driving the prices, no california or Chuinese on the market yet?? I must say i am presenting some very nice garlics but even the cull types are fetching 3-4 bucks per quart, tiny ugly stuff, some not at all well presebnted or even cleaned with the stalks still on them are doing ok too..
I still only charge $1.00 per for the larger garlics.
