Garlic Update – Not a Pretty Picture!


‘Stinking rose
the heady scent of you
tangy spicy
most underrated
year-round orb
bulbous root incandescent moon’

If you read my blog on ‘Growing Garlic in a Pot’ posted on the 9th of February you would know not to expect a very pretty looking plant. (I think the picture pretty much says it all). This looks more like an onion plant than anything else! Oh wait! Why yes, garlic is a member of that family. Stupid me. However upon a taste test, I can tell you that the leaves taste like…. garlic. What a surprise.

Now that spring is only a few weeks away (March 21st). I’m hoping to get the plant moved out to the garden where it can do its growing thing. Perhaps by August I will have some fresh cloves to harvest. Perhaps not. Anyway this was an experiment from the start and if nothing else, I can use the tops to flavor some recipes.
