Giddy About Garlic


Mmmmmmmm... Garlic!!!

     I started some garlic in my window the other day. Yes, I know I said I wouldn't start anything new until after the move but I just couldn't resist. They were sprouting anyways so I figured why waste? I grabbed a tiny glass jar and stuffed them in root side down with a quarter inch of water. They seem to be doing great! We will see what comes of them in the near future.

     The green onions I had been keeping in a vase on the window sill did well until I ate them all. I guess it's time to go fork out another 60 cents for my next 2 month supply. It's worth it though. The last batch kept fresh (adding new growth each day) with no refrigeration and had me making amazing eggs the whole time I grew them. My husband even got fond of chopping himself fresh green onion on top of anything he pleased. I do keep scissors near the green onions to make it that much easier to just cut them whenever and I change the water everyday to prevent the roots from rotting. A little bit of work will have you eating better in a jiffy if you decide to try this.

  1. Yay garlic! Apparently the top greeny part you can eat like you would with scallions or chives, otherwise it takes about 8 months in soil to grow into a full garlic. I just tried planting garlic too, but it had a mild touch of mold, so we'll see.
