The garlic won’t grow

25 06 2011

Garlic is grown from the cloves and the bigger the cloves the better the result. There has been some really nice garlic in the supermarkets this year and it’s about the only thing the birds don’t attack in my veggie garden so I was keen to give it a try. It all rotted in the ground. So when Steve mentioned that he was growing garlic I asked how he got it to germinate.
“The stuff coming in from China is all irradiated before it gets to South Africa” he laughed. “I don’t know if it is done to kill any pests or to protect the South African market” he added. Oh well, I won’t bother trying again the. At least it tastes pretty good!
