In my travels recently I was at local farm. The farmer was giving away sprouted garlic bulbs- my kids grabbed them and started using them as “magic wands”. That gave me the great idea- I grabbed a bunch and use them for nature play with my preschoolers.
But what next for these garlic bulbs- plant em’
Though the bulbs probably should have been planted in the fall, it is almost summer here, but I planted them anyway. Thought it would be good deterrent to keep the pests out of my vegetable garden- we all know vampires not like garlic- so maybe deers and bunnies don’t either? I separated the cloves and planted them an inch apart on the edges of my raised beds– also threw a couple in my rose beds- was reading that garlic also keeps aphids from roses-
