Default Who remembers?

Some months past there was a post by someone who grew garlic and how much better it was than common store bought. It must be, or getting to, harvest time and I for one would like to order some. Searching "garlic" on the site brings up an impossible list. Does anyone remember the post and who it was?

I'll try a few searches, but we have a local garlic farm and their fresh garlic is much better flavor than anything from the grocery store.

Edit: The post may have been from Brauma. I know that he grows and smokes his own garlic.

We grow our own every year. We simply keep a few bulbs out from the harvest and use the cloves for fall planting. You can accomplish the same thing with any garlic bulb, including the store bought. Storage of the harvest is important to keep them useable. Panty hose or stockings work really well. You drop a bulb in, tie a knot, drop another bulb, tie a knot, etc. We hang them on the garage wall. When you need a bulb, just cut below the knot. That lets the air circulate around them and prevents dry rot.

Thanks. What is the season and how long do they last hanging?

As a side note, try planting a set of chives. They survive our winters and come back stronger every year. That of course gives you a cross flavor of garlic & onion. They produce a flower every spring. Those flowers are gold! Break them up and sprinkle on a salad to add really great flavor. You can infuse a champagne vinegar with the flower as well. Just put the flowers in a container with the vinegar for a few days, then strain out the flowers and put the vinegar back in its original bottle. It picks up the color of the flower and is really good as an oil & vinegar dressing.

Plant now & harvest in the fall when the bulb breaks through the ground or the stalks start to dry out. They’ll last well into the following spring.

Cant help with the planting season but agree home grown is fantastic
dont overlook using the stalks without overtrimming as a salad/green sprinkle, same as chives.

mjpmap, your post " You drop a bulb in, tie a knot, drop another bulb, tie a knot,
just turned on a bulb in my head, thanks

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll stick a head (or just a clove?) in the ground and see what happens. I have chives growing several years but don't recall seeing it flower.

One tip with chives... Either put them in an area that has a solid boundary, or use a container. they spread easily and will take over a planting bed given time.

Do a search of your local county extension office you will surely find some great tips on growing lots of good things perfect for your growing zone. There may even be a list of farms near you that sell their fresh produce, and local farmers markets are a good source, also.

There are numerous places to buy garlic. This place is decent and has lots of additional info.

Garlic planted in the fall and overwintered will produce more reliably than spring planted. Just plant single cloves with the root end pointing down. About two inches deep and six inches apart. Mulch heavily with straw. Soon there will be green garlic shoots sticking through the straw. This will overwinter just fine. Around mid summer (depending on the variety) it will be time to harvest. If they stay in the ground too long the wrappers will start splitting open and storage time will be shortened considerably. Dry the bulbs on a screen before storing. Hard neck varieties have a stronger (hotter) flavor but only store up to 6 months. Soft neck varieties will store much longer. Also trying to plant garlic from your grocer is a hit and miss kinda thing. They are often treated with an anti spouting agent which will be a problem in the garden. Only buy certified seed stock from a reliable seed supplier for best results.

Fayborg id’d the outfit I’ve been buying garlic and shallot seed for years. Incredible quality and huge selection of varieties. You need to order early for the specialty/rare - but not for the normie varieties. You can get an ok crop with store bought or saved cloves - but getting certified seed every year is a whole different ball game. Agree 100% with RonBrad’s advice - search your local university extension for information re best varieties. It’ll take a couple seasons to zero in on the right varieties for your area - and how you use and store. I have best crop when planting in fall and harvesting next spring early summer.
