The garlic is just starting to emerge in my community garden plot. This is fall-planted hardneck; the bulbs were saved from garlic I had planted in 2019 and harvested late last summer.
Every spring I think to myself, why didn’t I plant even more?
Do you grow garlic?
I don’t grow garlic but would like to. I am going to look up to see if I can just grab a garlic and plant it or what?
If you’re in a cold climate your best bet is to plant hard neck garlic in the fall. You can order it from seed and flower catalogs.
Mijn knoflook staat er prima bij in de tuin
I started out with one hard neck bulb a friend gave me, which probably had 4 or 5 cloves on it. That was a few years ago. Each year I would eat half the harvest and replant the other half. This year I have 45 plants growing which will be ready probably in July. Right now they are about 18 inches high but will double that by July. This is the first time they have gotten this tall this early. I’m in Michigan so it not like they’ve been thriving in a warm climate! I use a lot of garlic because every summer I make a couple quarts of pesto with the basil I also grow.
Hi Sheryl. My husband plants garlic and enjoys using it in our dishes. I prefer just getting a clove or two as needed from the grocery store rather than planting it. Just a personal preference. He plants one or two plants I think, just so that he has enough for the winter and spring. 🙂
I do not grow garlic, but I have undoubtedly spent several years’ worth of gardening hours trying to eradicate the wild type from each of my gardens! 😀
Nice photo. I don’t grow garlic but I used a lot of garlic in cooking. haha
I had a message from Gaye K. – I hope she catches it here as her email bounced as undeliverable when I responded privately. I’m not sure where she is from, but if she’s in Calgary, Venus flytrap plants may be purchased at greengate Garden Centres in their houseplant department, and I have seen them at Spruce It Up in the past. I’m sorry for not being able to reach you via email, Gaye!
Hi Sheryl thanks for your nice Garlic going on post. Here you mention Do you grow garlic? in this article. I really support this point but I don’t grow garlic. Thanks again.
