    Default Botany? What's Next?? ;-)

    Guess you'll be getting back to us on this one, eh, Vince?

    Well, my 'botany' days are a bit astern, but garlic is a bulb, itself...
    AND, you even said it is sprouting (read - signs of new life??)

    Here's a link - it's grown in Canada:

    GROWING GARLIC

    Perhaps nurture it indoors til the fall....then plant it outdoors.
    In the interim, Carrs????

    Happy Sprouting!

    Default Tilt! Tilt!

    Hmm, good ol' Latrobe. . . Dunno... perhaps the 'green glass' acts like a pre-amble to a greenhouse?

    Whatever you do - (one of few pet peeves) - remember to turn the plants so they don't appear to be longing to jump out the window!
    You know - leaning towards the sun... It's an adaptation thing, but 'to me' it looks like 'plant neglect!'

    I forget the word for it (this is gonna drive me crazy!)... starts with a 'P'...

    Anyway - you could try a few Heinikens, Rolling Rocks, some Bud spun aluminum 'bottles'... Alaska Amber and get back with us!

    Let me know when you get cooking!

    The farms in Palmer sell fresh, green, garlic in the summer. So I guess it grows well here.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    You can grow garlic here and yes it will grow from the individual segments, you don't need seeds. You will need a harty varity though because they need to winter over before they will produce nice bulbs.

    Default Hmmmm. . .

    Perhaps I can introduce you to MidnightSunRebel's local creation:

    The power of 'the net' . . .

    Vince - if you're nice, maybe you can 'sublet' a corner and grow your garlic together with his tomatoes...
    Then you'll have garlic flavored tomatoes . . . or tomato flavored garlic!?!
