has this ever happened to you?
you go for a head of garlic and realize that it's taken on a whole new personality.
usually i try to salvage what i can and compost the rest, but this time i decided to plant it!
i didn't get too fussy- just separated the cloves and kind of threw them in a pot and
covered them up with dirt.
i figured they'd already started growing, so they probably didn't need much help.
and, happily...they're growing like crazy! i'm starting them inside because it's still a little too
cold out on the porch...so they've set up camp in our guest room, next to our
avocado tree...i cannot wait for some home-grown guacamole in a few years.
check out the progress!
this is about 3 weeks after planting... they grow so quickly!
so, adventures in container gardening...sort of.
stay tuned...hopefully we'll have some garlic recipes coming up soon!
