Growing garlic

I plant cloves in the fall, usually in October since I'm in (US) Zone 7.  They usually sprout and grow a bit, overwinter, and then continue with strong spring growth, producing new cloves in late spring and early summer. These plants show robust new growth following warm weather.


I've had a lot of fun growing garlic.  It's remarkably easy and garlic seems to be pretty trouble-free.

I'm trying to resist harvesting too much 'green' garlic this spring.  It's totally delicious -- fresh young shoots are excellent in stir-fries and other dishes.

  2. Lisa,

    We have a good crop of garlic too. Not enough to use as green onions. Yours looks as good as ours does!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
