It Worked!!! My garlic trial is successful...so far. You might remember that a few weeks ago I planted garlic that I bought at the grocery store. I wasn't sure how it would do because sometimes grocery chains spray root preventor/growth retardant on garlic so that it looks better in the shelves. This time, though, I lucked out!!! So...here it is:

And a close-up...

I planted 11 cloves a few weeks ago and 5 came up really strong with a 6th just trying to poke through. Not bad for not using seed garlic. After the winter freeze and the spring re-growth, we'll see how the plants do. Stay tuned...
