[I wrote this post back in May, and I figured I might as well post it since it was already finished. I wasn’t able to actually harvest any fully grown bulbs because the little shoots sticking up got eaten and stepped on and everything else. But it was still fun to learn how to grow something new, and I’m definitely going to give it another try 🙂 ]
Well, I put some garlic cloves in some water and they grew roots. Easiest growing project I’ve ever done. The post I read about it said to just submerge the bottom of the clove and not the whole thing because then it’ll rot. And it only took a few days to see roots shooting out from the bottoms.
This morning I planted these 7 cloves in my garden — you can see the one little sprout sticking up there. I ate the other one that had sprouted and it was delicious! Garlic chives are a whole new thing for me.
This is one day of being in the ground. There’s already 4 sprouts showing. I took the picture with one sprout showing this morning and then this one below this afternoon.
Feet selfie! Feetsie!
Garlic is so easy to grow! I’m going to include it in my garden yearly now. So easy to plant and quick to grow.
(I’m also going to build a fence, or some sort of enclosure to keep the deer from munching everything like they did this year. Doesn’t lead to much of a harvest at all when they do that!)
