Garlic Obsession: How to Grow and Harvest Garlic




Karen Shelton
To experience garlic’s many colors and flavors, you must try different varieties, such as this ‘Spanish Roja’ --- I grow garlic because I love it and eat it every single day. This year I had to add another bed because I didn’t have enough room for all 17 varieties. When I harvest the garlic in July, it generally only gets me through to the New Year. Then I run out of homegrown and have to buy it for use in the kitchen. My goal is to grow enough so I don’t have to buy any. I love the way garlic grows and looks, and being able to harvest green garlic in the early spring — it makes me feel both humble and rich at the same time. —Susan Belsinger
