    @superlighter. Yes, garlic was quite expensive. I guess it's because it's organic and they grow it themselves. The most expensive one was Chesnok ( Russian for garlic ) from Ukraine. It is the really strong one. But, for me it was weird to see such price. If u tell anyone from Russia or Ukraine hat u have to pay 150 rumbles for a bulb of garlic, people wouldn't believe u:)))

    garlic don't need special care to be cultivated, it only need a good soil and no chemicals, so I think that the equation "organic=expensive" is good only for the crafty producers and avid sellers :)

    @superlighter. But in this country they usually don't grow anything themselves, only import mas produced stuff, such as plastic strawberries , tasteless tomatoes and so on, everything of the same size, according to the EU rules. So everything that is locally grown without chemicals is super expensive, cause manual labour costs a lot here

    @superlighter. Also, these guys go through the trouble of growing many different types of garlic over wise not available to buy anywhere in this country so I guess they justify their prices with that

    @superlighter. I wasn't happy about the prices, but what can u do? U either bu it or not. In supermarkets garlic is not very good. Anyway, I ate it all: baked it and stuff...

    I´m with @superlighter: Toooo much expensive !!! I´m not sure, but I think that I pay 1€ ... for 4 or 5 garlics!! I know here is Spain (and Italy to @superlighter) ... Our countries produced a lot of this ... and the english are not the first garlic´s fans!! ;)) By the way ... the photos are great, as ussual from @neja!!!

    @jaalvarez @superlighter you can buy cheap garlic in supermarkets, anything from £0.70 per 3 bulbs. you can buy a kilo of garlic from Korean shop for £1.50.
    But this garlic farm offers something different from a regular garlic- it's locally grown, it's good for roasting and some of it originates from different countries, such as UKRAINE - which is exotic for British

    Well ... this is different ... Here, in Spain (I think it´s the same in Italy) we have a lot of origins to the garlics, always all of the into our country. You know this is cheaper that the Ukraine ones ... ;)
