In the Garden: Out with the old, in with the new

Last weekend, I was planting marigolds in the veggie garden, for some color and to help keep pests away, and this plant had to go – it was right where I needed to put a marigold in order to get the symmetry I like in my garden 😉

I thought it was an onion, but when I pulled it out, I saw it was a head of garlic – and a good-sized one, too.

Fresh garlic

That reminded me that in the kitchen, I had a head of garlic with sprouts on the cloves, so I got that, separated the cloves, and planted them in the garden, so this fall, we’ll have more homegrown garlic. For the record, I planted them between the pepper plants (so I can find them again). 🙂
