Like I stated in my post yesterday Grow Your Own Garlic? I wanted to try it for myself. So last night I planted my own cloves to see if they will grow.
It really was easy!
Using a square glass vase that I had, I filled it with potting soil I also happened to have. The soil was a bit dry so using a spray bottle i misted water throughout the soil to add some moisture.
Since I am using a container that is bigger than a small plant pot I decided to try and double my chances by using two garlic cloves. This was also easy since I always have fresh garlic on hand in the kitchen.
I made a small hole and placed the clove inside with the pointy end facing up, then covered the clove with a thin layer of soil. I did the same with the second clove.
When I was done I again misted the top layer of soil with a little water, hopefully to jump start the growing process.
After that it is out of my hands. I placed the vase in a window where it can receive ample sun light and now I wait!
You can follow my hopeful success, I will be posting all the highlights of this adventure on my Hungry For Living Facebook Page!
