        • Well, I just planted garlic today, so I’d like to see that really take off and grow.  I planted a pound, so if it does all grow, I’ll have enough for me, my daughter, and probably the guy down the street who makes his own deer sausage like I do.  Bounty is for sharing!

        • ok I put some garlic in with my tomatoes and other plants. They’ve got big green stalks. I’ve heard you‘re supposed to over winter it but I haven’t looked into it yet. I’ve never grown it before. Any tips?

          I like the red/purple skinned garlic. It has a thicker ‘skin’ and peels so easily compared to the other garlic.

        • Generally, garlic is planted in the fall and harvested around July.  At least that’s the way we northern gardeners do it.  Not sure about how it’s grown in the south.

        • Thanks tuliplady! I put mine in in July so I’ll put some more in now and watch the first stuff I put in to see what happens with it.
