Well… here’s the question:
If you plant store bought garlic, will it grow?
If you remember, about four weeks ago, I did just that. Planted China grown garlic cloves, straight from the grocery store.
And here’s the verdict…
YES!!! They’re growing!
Some of these guys are about ten inches tall already. I’m so excited!
Now, the next question is, will they produce?
I’m dying to know if these plants will grow into nice garlic heads, or if they’ll be duds. I won’t know till I harvest, sometime between mid-May to early June.
I think I’ll mulch them lightly with leaves or straw soon, to protect them a little from the winter months.
Maybe, with some luck, I’ll have a successful harvest early next Summer!
Did you plant garlic this year? Have any tips you can share??
