Well, we got our first frost of the year last night, which means that your veggie garden is probably toast (unless you're one of the very few people I know who take precautions to guard against early frost). So, let me give you something to do this weekend, something you will NOT regret, if you LOVE garlic like I do.
1) In your garden, clear out some space (if you don't have a garden, make one, flip some soil!)
2) Get some big garlic bulbs and split them apart so you are down to the cloves (shown below)
3) Bury them root down, pointy side up, about 2 to 4 inches deep in the soil
4) Now do NOTHING. Just wait. In 9 months, you'll have fresh garlic!
HOT TIP: Actually, you will do ONE thing. In about 8 months your garlic will be growing well and you'll likely see some garlic scapes coming out of the plant. You'll want to snip those around the 8 month mark, a good month before you pull up your garlic.
