An All Things Plants Favorite: Garlic

By dave

What is the absolute easiest edible plant you can grow? I spent my entire morning contemplating that question, and nothing came to mind that beats garlic. As everyone knows, it's a bulb, planted in the fall, grown through the winter, and harvested in very early summer. It requires no special care during the growing season, and has absolutely innumerable uses. Let's talk about this incredible plant.

Yes, it does have scapes but I harvest the scapes and don't let it go to seed.

OK, at least you now know that you have planted hardnecks. Well, almost sure. I had a softneck variety produce scapes this year, and I had never seen that happen before.
