Introducing A Brand New Addition To The "Organic Gardening" Series by Michael O’Halloron.
For thousands of year’s cooks, chefs, herbalists and medicine doctors from all over the world have been fascinated by the wonders put forth by garlic. Garlic has even intrigued gardeners since the beginnings of agrarian societies, and no wonder! Garlic’s reputation as a medicinal and healthy food, its variety of flavors, and its ability to be a companion plant to protect other plants from pests make it a good choice for gardeners.
Flavorful and simple to grow, garlic is among the easiest of foods to store. The design of this book is to help give you a foundation from which to choose the best types of garlic to grow in your zone and region and select the best flavor to please your palate.
It demonstrates how to prepare the planting bed, encourage the growth of your crop, and finally leads you into the harvesting, curing, storing and many uses of your homegrown treasure.
