Use Our Garlic For Planting!

Garlic is fun and easy to plant in your home garden. It needs good garden soil, plenty of water and full sun. Prepare a plot now with some good quality compost, and start saving garlic to plant in October. The garlic we sell at market is good to grow here in Colorado. Anytime is good to stock up. Just store your garlic in a cool place in your kitchen - out of direct sunlight. Storing in a paper bag helps keep the moisture in, but lets it breathe.
