I read in a few blogs on how easy garlic grows, so I planted some supermarket garlic in the fall around October. There are 2 varities of garlic, the supermarket garlic falls into soft neck variety. These can be kept for months. I harvested them on Saturday, the tops turned yellow and I thought it was time to harvest. In the hind sight, I think I should have waited till July :) One bulb was completely formed whereas the others were small. Anyway lesson learned. This fall I will buy the right variety from the nursery and try it out. Overall I am happy with my experiment and the kids had fun watching the process from planting the cloves to harvesting the bulbs. Here are some pictures.
