Very well written and chock full of good information. I grew garlic for many years but have let it slip off of my list the last few years. I think I'll try it again this fall. An acorn has been sent your way. Thanks.

Thanks again, Carl. My garlic helps pay for my addiction - orchids. Sticking tongue out
