> garlic crop

Now that's something I can't do without, I would need a large planting.  I suspect many city folk like me don't really now if they keep for any length of time, like onions, do they store, what do you do with them?

As a kid in Germany and recall having racks of potatoes in the cellar to get us through the winter along with large ceramic jars of sauerkraut, fermenting cabbage in it's juices , packed with layers of salt and spices.  Funny how nowadays I order kimchi at Korean restaurants, same thing, just spicier.

Yup they store well. Probably in late June they'll get pulled with the above ground leaves and allowed to dry. Keep in a bowl under the counter they'll last through winter.

Cuba’s First American-Owned Manufacturer Will Make Tractors

The Oggún may be the world’s first open source tractor. The frame of the Oggún 1.0 base model is an original design but rooted in the Allis-Chalmers Model G, a mainstay of the postwar farming boom of the late 1940s and early ’50s.
