Re: Planted 125 cloves og Garlic today
Hey, I have a question. Do you have to harvest it every year or can you let it be and it will come up year after year. I have some I let go last year and I didn't need it this year so I guess I'll let the little experiment continue. It came back up but I didn't check the bulbs.

Does any of this make sense, I'm rambling.

You are right about garlic products and China. I hate to buy any food from China. I refuse to buy mushrooms that are canned because they are from China. There was one brand with American mushrooms but now even they say product of China. Fresh mushrooms for me, I should check the dried ones or learn to gather wild ones.

we bought 20 pounds of fresh Mushrooms from Aldis on sale this year for 2 bucks a pound and canned them ourselves..They was labeled from Pennsylvania and by canning ourselves there is no EDTA (said to preserve color) just Mushrooms and un refined Sea Salt:) my color looks just fine after almost a year now...

Yes, you do have to harvest it. What you don't' bring up will sprout in a crowded condition. If there are 12 cloves on your bud you'll have 12 sprouts and they won't have room to grow. You can use them as green garlic in, sparingly cause it's strong tasting. Or better yet prepare a new bed and lift the bulbs, separate them in the early spring, soon as you can work in the garden, and grow them all. Give away what you don't need. If you're early enough getting to them, and give them lots of compost or similar food, they should make decent mid-sized bulbs.

when harvested we dry the Garlic in the out building for around 3-4 weeks,Then choose some to Dehydrate , After dehydrating we purchased a Coffee grinder and it grounds it up very nicely, Then add and mix in Sea Salt to your desired taste and you can even add some dried parsley,Basil or whatever you want and store in a sealed glass Jar....The difference in taste from store bought is pretty big.

I started about 120 or so myself in the first week on November. I made 4= 2x2 squares of 2x6 lumber with thin galvanized fencing on the bottom lined with newspaper. Most of the medium is pearlite, vermiculite and some potting soil to keep it lite. My objective is to raise a large amount of seed for a new raised bed I will make in the early spring.
Many dont know that you can start your garlic in the fall, let them get some size and develop root structure and plant them as sets, like onions in the spring, so you can get huge bulbs.

I planted Georgia Crystal, Lorz Italian, Silver white and Elephant garlic, the later I bought from the grocery store and planted.

Garlic is so easy to grow that I think only one clove has not germinated.

The seed I was using for this came from this past springs container grown crop.

No excuses, super easy to grow and very drought tolerant.

a piece of a clove of garlic will cure an earache almost instantly. cut it to fit in the ear, coat the cut parts with oil so it doesn't burn.

Re: Planted 125 cloves og Garlic today
Must be almost a year ago that I started planting garlic. I have yet to have a single plant flower or produce a bulb.

My other food crops have all gone through multiple growth and harvest cycles. I sometimes pull the whole plants up and chop them up and put them in a stew.

There is something in the whole plant though, mildly toxic perhaps, to where I do not feel comfortable with more than one whole garlic plant added to a particular dish (for one person).

Make sure to check the underside of the leaves for leaf miner eggs, they can quickly ruin your chard and spinach

Did you have to wash the grinder well to rid it of the garlic smell, or was it not that bad since it was dried?
