Garlic growing in my driveway

Cheap Vegetable Gardener 005

Just to show our level of rain in the Pacific Northwest, I must have misplaced a couple of garlic cloves when I was braiding my garlic last summer since I noticed 4 garlic plants growing in the gravel next to my driveway.

Even with the less than ideal “soil” they were growing in they have some decent looking root structure.  Provided my garden has a no plant left behind policy I dug up each of these garlic plants and found a place for them next to the garlic cloves I intentionally planted in my garden last fall.

    This is the first time I am growing garlic in a large pot. At this time, I have a flower that is starting to bloom. I started my garlic from cloves that I planted in Nov. I don’t know when to pick the garlic.I don’t know when the plant is ready for picking. Can you tell me when. Thanks. Roe

    You can also dig a little and take a peek at the bulbs, but typically when the leaves turn brown it is time to harvest. Just be sure to let them dry out for a couple days to cure.
