Garlic is easy to grow and produces numerous bulbs after a long growing season and is frost tolerant. Plant garlic about 2 months before the first hard frost. To grow garlic, plant individual cloves about 1-2 inches beneath the soil about 4-6 inches apart. Make sure not to use garlic cloves from the store as they may not be the right variety or have been treated. Harvest the garlic when the yellow tops start to fall over. Garlic isn’t just for cooking, you can also use it as an insect repellent or in home remedies.
