I was in Monterey, CA a few years ago for the aquarium, seafood and birding. While returning back to San Fran, I decided to travel back a different route since I had driven down the coast earlier. I just happened to travel through Gilroy, CA during their festival. I had to stop. Everything garlic was available including garlic ice cream which I tried but I did not care for it. If you like garlic and I do, you would enjoy the event. I had enough garlic that day to last me for some time.
Oddly, their other famous crop is strawberries which they are growing adjacent to the garlic. Seems like there would be some flavor transfer.
We just harvested our garlic a few days ago and got about two bushel.
