WE PLANTED GARLIC THIS WEEKEND!! To begin, all of the 500 heads of garlic must be broken up into individual cloves. We used the waterwheel planter and had some help from Jay. This allows 2 people to sit on the back and place the clove of garlic in the spot marked by the wheel. We eyed the third row in the middle. We planted 4 beds with 3 rows each and covered them with organic straw to tuck them in for the winter. In the spring, the garlic will grow through the straw and the straw will help keep the weeds at bay.

Veggie Notes and Recipe links:

Napa Cabbage – kimchi, soups, dumplings, stir-fries, eggrolls, cabbage rolls

Purple Daikon Radish – salads, slaw, thin slice raw, shredded onto salads, pickled, kimchi, roasted

Peppers – all – can be sliced, diced and frozen without blanching; jalapenos are great in cornbread
