Almost garlic season

So my favorite aunt Donna gave me a great idea for the fall: plant my own garlic. Why not? It doesn’t take much work over the winter and apparently homegrown garlic has a much more pungent flavor than the store-bought variety. This is of course great news. I’ve done a lot of research so far and I’ll be planting the cloves here at home in mid-October. I’ll make sure to chronicle the steps, but it looks like so far I’ll be using Silverskin garlic (a softneck variety) because of the strong flavor and that it can store up to a year dried. More on this soon.

I hope to have at least this harvest in the spring.

  1. Your favorite aunt !
    I am blessed, thank you.
    It’s been a while but I’m excited about your growing garlic. You’re lucky, up here they can really only grow the stiff neck variety.
