Green garlic

Every chowhound should try this. Get a regular old head of garlic from the grocery , break it up into cloves and plant right side up just below the soil. All you need is a decent size flower pot. I like the Earthbox. Check out the roots on this thing; two feet long in a 10" deep container. I'm going to make a little garlic/parmesan cheese toast to go with our dinner.

Edit: I apologize for the lame photo.

  1. I just had garlic cheese noodles for supper!

    I grow lots of garlic. The best part is when it blooms. That scape is pungent and delicious.

    1. re: Sue in Mt P

      I grow some too! What varieties.are you growing and where? This year I'm doing Music, Russian red, and early white, also sow red shallots, and sone giant garlic that came with. This is my first tie trying again, after a three year hiatus.

    2. I just plant whatever I've gotten from the grocery store.

      Made some green garlic/parsley/walnut pesto tonight. Chopped the greenery and nuts on the board, grated in a little parm and was done in three minutes flat. Crazy delicious.
