Grow Your Own Garlic from Cloves

Growing your own garlic is a great introduction to gardening and a wonderful way to involve your kids. Do you have a head of organic garlic that is sprouting? Break it up and plant the cloves close together pointy side up in a pot or recycled take out container. Cover them with about an inch of soil and keep them moist but not soggy. You will see green shoots coming up in about a week. Cut them as they grow and use them as you would chives or scallions. They are a great addition to cream cheese, eggs, or salad. They also grow in the winter time so start planting them today!
