If you'd like to grow some garlic, all you need to do is get yourself some healthy mold free garlic heads. Peel off the papery skin from the outside. Pull apart the individual cloves being careful to leave their skin on. You can be neat and poke perfect holes in the garden ground and drop them in, or you can be lazy and dig one long trench to drop them in all at once, leaving enough space for growth. Water regulary and dig up once the tops of the leaves begin to wilt and yellow.
I like to wash ours and then braid the stems together so I could hang bunches in the kitchen to dry. You can clip one off as needed.

papery skin to feed to the garlic loving goats.

the skin intact so it will stay safe in the ground.
|Best not to do this on a table with holes in it.|
I'm sure you can guess why...

the cloves in at intervals.
