Garlic is Growing!

I planted several heads of grocery store garlic a few weeks ago. It already started peeking through the mulch and has grown quite a bit during the warm-spell we had the last couple weeks. Hopefully this growth spurt isn't going to compromise their winter survival (I'm pretty sure this happened last year too and it grew just fine). 

Fall-planted garlic on Nov 14

This fall and last fall I planted grocery store garlic.  It did great last year! I was surprised because most of the garlic at the grocery store is from California, but it did just fine in Michigan.

Garlic for sale at my 2010 farmer's market stand. These heads were grown from grocery store garlic cloves!
