Garlic Grows Well

I did a head count yesterday.  If all goes well with the growing season, I will have 129 bulbs of garlic in November!  This vegetable is just so easy to grow.  Just stick it in the ground, water, and harvest 6 months later when the tops die down!

So from the original two bulbs of garlic that I bought from Diggers club three years ago, I harvested about 20 bulbs in the first season, 50 bulbs in the second and, well you can tell what will happen next.  Just by saving a few more of the fattest bulbs each year as seed for the next, you will never have to buy garlic ever again.

With these two puppy-chinos guarding the crop, I have no doubt at all that it will be a bumper one!

    I count my garlic too….make that potential garlic, something always happens to a portion of the original count. Same goes for any other crop you are looking forward to 😉

    I love growing garlic, it is the easiest thing to grow and so useful! I can’t understand why more people don’t grow it.
    BTW I love reading your blog!

    I bought a punnet with 4 seedlings in and planted them a few weeks ago. My plan is the same as yours… gradually increase the yield every year.

    I am hoping for better success this year, though we are still eating our own homegrown garlic from last year. This year, looser soil in a better garden bed, but also, the bulbs are going into a bed where pumpkins were…

    Aren’t your guard dogs cute, I mean, savage and ruthless!
