Homegrown, organic garlic is to commercial-conventional as Chateau Neuf is to Ripple.
Order it now, or buy from a farmers’ market. In October (on Cape Cod), separate the cloves and bury each, root end down, maybe two inches deep and 6-8 inches apart in a wide bed. Each clove will multiply into a bulb by next summer, when you harvest and dry.
Done. Nice job. Almost as fun as picking basil.
