Gilroy Ca Stinks!

Recommended Posts

Literaly,

Hey robert I was watching some show about gardens and it visited Gilroy CA. Apparently Gilroy is the Garlic capitol of the US?

How does it work does everyone live on the east side so when the wind blows they don't smell it?

Is garlic even pungent before harvested?

This time of year, you can smell the canneries cooking the garlic.  Makes me hungry when I get home.  :)

I live outside of town, west side up in the mountains.  so the smell carries here.  It's not overbearing, and honestly, it does smell really good...

I was hoping to experience this when I visited.  I guess it's just certain times of year.  Reminds me of Vermont during maple syrup season, the sugar houses cooking off the maple smells awesome in your house if you live downwind. (I did)

The funny thing about reading this is that I have a dozen heads of Garlic roasting right this very minute (working on a new roasted garlic/rosemary puree for sauces).

My house smells like heaven right now :)

The Gilroy Garlic Festival is the only reason I'd ever enter the state of California.

That and the outstanding extradition warrant..... ;D

Throw in some ground beef and noodels and I am flying your way for dinner.

It'd be interesting to switch out garlic for the smells I get from the Nabisco cookie factory or the Tootsie Roll factory. Depending on the wind and I can get either 1 of the 2 where I'm at in Chicago.

I could live with the tannery smell if I had the Argentinian beef place close by. :)
