Garlic - you need to plan ahead

Just a quick note that if you intend to plant garlic next year, you need to think about getting garlic seed stock now. Garlic is planted in October, but you need to order your seed stock now! Many places that sell garlic for planting take orders now and deliver in October - but often stop taking orders in early September. There are many vendors, from your local farmers market to mail order nurseries across the country. The one place it's best not to buy from is your grocery store - garlic there is treated not to sprout - except organic garlic.
