Vampires Beware! Planting Garlic

Dan and I stopped by one of our favorite places in Asheville, Small Terrain, and picked up a couple heads of garlic. We’re planting “California Early” a softneck variety. They’re organic and from Sow True Seed.

This plate measures about 5″ across.

I went home and planted several of them and am giving the rest to friends and neighbors.  Although we’ve experienced the thrill and pain of harvesting over 12,000 heads of garlic! we have yet to plant any ourselves. (Seriously over 12,000! We’ll never forget that “Garlic Fest” at Birdsfoot Farm in Canton, NY.) As always, we’re very excited about planting our little seedlings, nurturing and waiting for them to grow. This is where our parenting energies are directed sans children.

We’re going to try out a few inside and outside. We’ll see how they all fare.

P.S. LOVE this watering can! 13 bucks at Small Terrain
