Planting Garlic and Other HOT Seeds for 2016 Harvest

What was on your to grow list this year that either didn’t succeed or you forgot to grow? I’ve always wanted to grow garlic in my home garden and have never been able to find healthy garlic seed when I need them.  While visiting the Veggie Trials in California in August friends from Sustainable Seed Company stopped by the trial garden at Seeds By Design and brought gifts – including Garlic!!!!  Garlic is at the top of my 2016 Harvest list.

  1. Dear Bren. The garlic challenged me also. For years, I tried to grow garlic from grocery store garlic pieces, without any result. Finally we ordered from seed store an old garlic type, which was ancestor of all today garlic. It not grows too big, and not so strong taste as the casual garlic what everyone use in food, but finally I had a success. Also very important, that you take the single cloves of it straight to the ground, just right to the surface, that its upper end can be still viewable, right before winter. (Almost every bulby things, bulby flowers like this, the best to plant them before winter, or during). In this summer finally I have harvested my own garlic. On the side of it are forming new little cloves, which at harvest I just pushed back in the ground and on this way I have continuingly growing garlics. I wish you good seeds and patient with it. Once you succeed you will see, it is not so hard, just have different requirement, like other vegetables.
