I just found some beatles in my garden the other day and I picked up some organic stuff to spray them with it was some kind of fish oil stuff. This garlic stuff sounds like just what I need. Thanks

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when itís a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, theyíre terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Great idea!, but I bet you could make it yourself or at least get it cheaper at a garden supply outfit than at a grocery store!

Whadayathink?

i found a use for your garlic spray!

GARLIC: Plant near roses to repel aphids. It also benefits apple trees, pear trees, cucumbers, peas, lettuce and celery. Garlic accumulates sulfur: a naturally occurring fungicide which will help in the garden with disease prevention. Garlic is systemic in action as it is taken up the plants through their pores and when garlic tea is used as a soil drench it is also taken up by the plant roots. Has value in offending codling moths, Japanese beetles, root maggots, snails, and carrot root fly. Researchers have observed that time-released garlic capsules planted at the bases of fruit trees actually kept deer away. It's certainly worth a try! Concentrated garlic sprays have been observed to repel and kill whiteflies, aphids and fungus gnats among others with as little as a 6-8% concentration! It is safe for use on orchids too.

Garlic is easy to grow. I'm planning on doing it this year
Yah, this team is so fun.
Hey, I've been snooting around the BonAppetit website this morning copying and pasting some cool recipes into my recipe docs. Do you all know how to use your "paste special" feature so you can paste with unformatted text? I do it all the time and always give credit (well almost always--when I remember, that is) to the website I get it from.

Id be leery of whats in the garlic spray to be honest.

If I wanted to make such myself, I would steep some garlic cloves in olive oil (in the fridge, to keep it from growing bacteria) until the olive oil picked up the flavor, then put the oil in my Misto.

That's not a bad idea actually.

Until I can buy organic garlic, I keep buying organic garlic in a jar. It is already crushed...
I'm scared to buy anything that isn't organic anymore!

I have that little cutter but I hardly ever use it. It's just one more little darn thing to wash out! I either press mine or usually I just give each clove a good whack using the flat side of a chef's knife and my fist. That pops off the skin lickity split and then I mince it up quick with the same knife--clean, quick for me. Or I roast whole cloves...I just don't whack it so hard lol.

I use lots of garlic too but always fresh. I have a garlic press which helps a lot. Not to long ago I got the little rolling thing for garlic at Linens and Things it is the most awesome thing I ever used for garlic. Its got a cutter in it and you put the garlic in and roll it on the counter and you get perfect minced garlic.

I have tried different types of garlic in the past never spay though imo there is not to compare with fresh.

I use fresh garlic too. My daughter jokes that we'll never have a problem with werewolves.

I guess that I wouldn't even be attracted to it. Garlic's volatile oils change so rapidly when once the clove is cut into. I find using fresh garlic very easy and quick...didn't used to, but I've found some helpful techniques that make it go fast. I use a LOT of garlic!
