My face palm of the week… growing your own garlic

DSCN2750

Sometimes I am incredibly blonde. I honest thought that potatoes and garlic were grown from seeds. So this week when Chris pulled a clove of garlic out of the cupboard that had a shoot coming out of it and suggested we planted it, I thought he was mad. But this is how it is done. Just like you plant a potato to grow potatoes, you plant garlic cloves to grow garlic. And the bigger the clove, the bigger the bulbs will come out. The best time to plant these is now during autumn! So get to it!

Very curious to see how well this is going to work. Also, planting garlic in your garden wards off many unwanted pests, including snails!
