This is the 1st time garlic was grown in the garden. It was planted in October and harvested in May. Success! It was fairly easy to grow and fairly easy to braid. Currently, the braid is being snipped at a rapid pace as salsa production goes into full gear. Another great use is to chop it up and cover it with olive oil to use on anything being grilled.
Garlic nuts swarm to the Garlic Festival held annually in Gilroy, California. It’s happening July 23-25 this year. I’ve never been and wonder about using garlic to flavor ice cream. Maybe if I lived closer I would visit the festival and give the ice cream a try.
I’ll plant again in the fall. In the meantime, vampires continue to fly over.
