planting garlic



Auntie Loretta gave us some garlic to plant this spring.
We were warned that it wasn't the best time to plant garlic.
The rest of the garden has been harvested...
but low and behold...
under those pumpkin and cucumber leaves...
the garlic was growing.


The proper time to plant garlic is just before the first frost.
Planting garlic in spring will give you lots of garlic chives...
which...tastes like garlic...
in a subtle form.

Sometimes...you just can't tell what is taking root from the surface.
That isn't always a good thing...
but garlic chives?....
that made me happy.

all for now..
with love,

  1. This is something completely new to me...didn't even know that there was such a thing as garlic chives... Interesting and it sounds as if it would be a delicious addition to a salad.

  5. Enjoy your garlic...and your garlic chives! A nice fall surprise.

    I remember the year your Uncle Elvin and Auntie Wendy planted elephant garlic in their garden...enough to supply the entire community and then some:)

  6. Sounds like you will continue to have tasty seasoned food coming out of your kitchen for some time. I'm still thinking about the jalapeno pepper burgers. Your garden was a worthwhile project once again.
