Just a friendly reminder-- it's time to plant your garlic. You need it in the ground before the first frost. For me, that time is ticking away.
For others it might be around mid-October, like the link below suggests.
I'm excited because this year we finally have a house, which means I finally have a garden. Last year I tried growing garlic out of pots and it
didn't work too well. I got flowers, but no bulbs.
For me, garlic is one of the staple foods of the home, so this is ideal for me. Anyway, have fun!
Well, to be honest, I'm not a medical professional so I can't say what is the proper amount of garlic per day for a person's health. But I do tend
to put at least 4 to 5 cloves in the meal I'm cooking. Sometimes more, sometimes less, of course.
We like it strong but have to tone it down when my parents come to visit.
I planted my Garlic a little late I missed the shortest day by a few weeks . I made the mistake of planting whole bulbs rather then the gloves by
themselves but I didn't know better and I followed the directions on the packet . I had given up on the Garlic that I planted because I thought that
the rain we had caused the bulbs to rot . It turns out that I was pleasantly surprised after a couple of sunny days my Garlic had germinated.
Part of the fun comes with learning from experience. I hate to admit it, but I learned that garlic could be grown from seperate cloves when one
clove worked its way to the back of the pantry. I didn't notice it until it had grown rather tall *blush* lol
