Today is such a beautiful day here in Northern Wisconsin!!! Temperature is in the low 60’s very beautiful for November!!  The fall leaves have pretty much lost their brilliance or have fallen off the branches and padded the ground!!

Being it was so beautiful out and my husband had my garden all tilled up, plus I had gotten a load of compost put on my garden a couple of weeks ago, I thought it would be a great time to plant my garlic.  I had no idea that planting garlic is so easy, well actually growing it is so easy too.    

To start by leveling off the garden area where I would be planting garlic and posted off where the rows would go.

Separate your garlic head into separate cloves.  Just pull them apart.  Pick out the biggest cloves for planting.  I am very fortunate to have a great friend who gave me some beautiful garlic.

Make sure when planting these you put the flat side down and the the other end pointing up.  Plant them around 4 inches apart and then cover them with 1 to 2 inches of dirt.

Now all you have to do is wait the winter out and in the spring you will see the garlic start to sprout, little green sprouts will shoot up and you are on your way to having some fresh garlic for your recipes, like my SnapIt Salsa!!

One tip I want to give you is the great gardening stool/kneeling pad, I couldn’t do all the gardening I do without my faithful-sturdy gardening stool!  I know you will love it and it sure makes getting up off that ground so much easier.  Would make a great Christmas Gift for that Gardener in your family, I know I would have loved one for Christmas last year!!
