    I've read that you put garlic in the ground in the fall for harvest the following year. So wanted to do this for our summer harvest, but we missed the window.

    Here's a link:

  • in by columbus day out by the fourth of july. 
    put the pointed (sprouted) sided facing up, throw some mulch around it so it doesn't heave out of the ground during winter frost and freeze cycles and by next summer you'll get a whole head out of it.
    (there's some more info but thats the need to knows to get its started)



    and yeah onefin, if you're in the hudson valley get in touch, i'll show you around and tip you off to the good swimming holes.

  • i have this orange tree i grew from a seed from an orange that came with some chinese food in 1987. anyway, when it was just a wee tree, i had some garlic laying around that had sprouted, so i just kinda stuck it in the dirt to the side of it and forgot about it...several weeks later, the orange tree wasn't looking so good, and i saw that there were little garlic sprouts coming out of the dirt...and upon further investigation it appeared that the garlic had had an explosion of root growth. i wrestled it out of the dirt, prying open its death grip on the orange, and hurled it out the open window of our 14th floor apartment. as i slumped down next to the orange tree panting with exhaustion, i savored the sweet rescue of my stalwart friend, and looked forward to years of quiet companionship.

    damn you, garlic.
