  • Plant garlic now for 2011 summer harvest

    For most of us, garlic has become a cooking staple. You can give anything flavor by adding a little garlic to the recipe and you can grow it yourself if you have a little space in the back yard.  
    For centuries, garlic has been enjoyed for its culinary, medicinal and spiritual qualities, including fending off evil spirits and vampires and acting as an anti-bacterial. There was evidence of garlic in King Tut’s tomb when it was discovered so obviously the ancient Egyptians were growing it as far back as 2100 B.C.  That’s some serious culinary history.
