How to Grow Garlic and a Garlic Salt Recipe

Adam and I are having a blast connecting with so many different people who enjoy playing in the soil.  In August we got to meet up with some awesome folks  at Veggie Trials who provide many of the seed for the plants we grow in our home gardens. Two of those awesome seedy folks were Founder and President of Sustainable Seed Company  John Fendley  ( A.K.A. Farmer John) and Seed Curator Leyla who holds degrees in the field of botany.

The #NGBplantnerds were super stoked to see Farmer John and all the great gifts he brought for them to take home for their gardens.

Garden Chatter : Growing Garlic

Adam and I were excited when John committed to sharing about how to grow garlic on  Garden Chatter  in early September.  Luckily, this was just in time for me to get out in my garden here in zone 5b and plant my Inchelium Red Garlic I brought home from California. During this 40 minute event John and Leyla shared growing tips, information about the seed, how to pick a garlic variety to grow and more.
