"I shall cut off her head and fill her mouth with garlic, and I shall drive a stake through her body."
--Bram Stoker's Dracula
So I planted garlic cloves last year. Probably not when I was supposed to. But I know I planted them "somewhere". I pulled several (that I could find) from the ground this morning, and here they are curing in the sun. They won't be ready to use for another week or so. I have to just leave them be until they've dried out.
