For the love of things cheap, country, crafty and creative

During my fathers visit this fall he brought me several garlic heads that he grew in his own garden in Texas. I have never grown garlic before so there is no better time than the present! Fall is the time to plant so I selected the largest bulbs and planted a dozen or so. As a general rule, seeds and bulbs are planted at a depth that equals their height. So for these, about 1.5 inches. These are large bulbs with a mild flavor. It will be fun to see how they do next fall. I plan to mulch them in with some leaves to protect them. Hopefully they are not too soft given that they came from Texas!
