2017 garlic!

post #1 of 9

What a difference a couple of weeks makes! Snow is gone, sun is out and this year's garlic crop is up. As with previous years, it looks like only two or three cloves didn't sprout.

This is something I really need to grow.  

 

In the fall I am busy harvesting crops and forget about the garlic.

Nice! I always forget to plant it too!

I have a coworker that grows regular garlic and elephant garlic, both are so much better than from the store!

A farmer forgetting a personal crop? Kind of like the cobblers children have no shoes? 😀

This signals the beginning of the season for me. The herbs are growing back, I turned the first bed and carrot seeds are now in the ground. Next up is turning the rest of the beds and getting lettuce, kale and pea seeds in the ground.

I only grew garlic once.  Just a small test crop.  I used one head of garlic and every clove sprouted.  The resulting product was nothing like the store bought garlic that I had planted--much better.  For some reason, it turned out spicy and hot.  It was great.  No idea why I never planted it again--too late this season, but maybe this fall.......

Not to mention the garlic scapes, one of the main reasons we plant garlic in the fall. Root crop. Radishes in spring, root crop. Tomatoes sure, jalapenos sure, tomatillos sure, peppers sure.

Now have a new puppy, part wheaton terrier part poodle (Whoodle?) Not a digger yet so root veg's may be safe, but tomatoes and jalapenos and tomatillos, the jury is out. Anyone interested in a red faced, hot breath dog with diarrhea?

Garlic scape pesto pasta is food of the gods. I increased the amount of hardneck I planted last fall just for that reason.
