I planted two different garlics we had in the pantry last fall. Looking forward to yummy garlic scapes followed by freshly dug and cured garlic bulbs. I planted each garlic clove, not the entire bulb in one spot in case you are wondering.
Last year I had garlic volunteers in my "compost file" - I didn't have a compost bin back then so I just made a pile of stuff that I stacked with trimmings from the yard and the kitchen scraps. To tell you the truth, I like this free-from pile compost better than what I have now. Just care-free and so natural. I ended up creating another compost pile next to the current compost bin anyway. I need a better strategy for composting. While searching, I found this article about composting (a pdf file). I am glad that composting doesn't have to be so complicated.
