Garlic! Gotta love the sweet, potent, aroma that wafts through the air when roasting it. Yummy. Last year I followed Mother Earth News planting cycle for Garlic ... Columbus Day. We lovingly tilled the soil, by hand mind you ... to try our hand at growing garlic. I was skeptical, yet, I love garlic.
And then, to my dismay, I saw the young plants bursting through the soil several weeks later. Fearing the worst, I figured the crop would be a failure as the first frost, and winter loomed around the corner.
So, once again I figured I would start from scratch in the early Spring.
Wouldn't ya know it, we drove down to the cabin in late winter/early spring and there it was, the garlic was peering at us through a light dusting of snow ... it was 4 inches tall and looking as happy and content as it could be!

This year ... a larger plot has already been tilled in our garden. We figured we would rotate an area that we had planted tomatoes and turnip greens would be ideal.
(Note: the garden in in south western Virginia where the winters are relatively mild, yet last winter we saw a lot of low 20's in January).
