Hello, Everyone. Thank you all for the wonderful comments. We are very excited about this video and hope you are too! The garlic seed, the clove, can be planted now in most areas-but try to get it in before Thanksgiving so you can have nice garlic to harvest by June or July. Garlic is a blessing and can be used as a food and a seasoning-but it's also the world's best natural infection fighter. Garlic can also deter insects so it makes a great border for your garden.
Many Homestead Blessings, Vicky
P.S. Tips: -When grown together, garlic and tomatoes benefit each other! -Plant garlic where no member of the cabbage family grew the year before. For recipes using garlic check out our Herbs DVD and homestead blessings cook book.
Dear friends, We hope this video will encourage you to let your chickens make your compost! They love to scratch anyway, so when you give them the materials, anywhere from a few weeks to a few months, you should be harvesting compost helpful to your garden and plants. Thank you all for your encouraging comments!
