It's that time of year again... as the leaves begin to fall, it is time to think about getting your garlic bed ready to plant. It is so worthwhile to grow your own because there is such a vast array of types to choose from, which you just cannot get at the grocery store. I personally prefer hardnecks over softnecks, although I always grow some of each for their flavor and for storage.

Fans of the country lifestyle flock together every year to celebrate a simpler way of life. The fair in Rhinebeck, N.Y., in early June offered vegetable gardeners something old, something new, something edible that’s blue.

Right now, we are rich in alliums. In the past few weeks, we have been curing the alliums--garlic, onions and shallots--which we harvested about three weeks or so ago. It is important to cure and store these bulbs so you don't lose your crop to mold or rot.
Though spring has sprung, it's not too late to plant some allium plants in your garden. Here is a basic guide of what to grow and how to prepare the soil. Watch Danielle's videos for some hands-on tips.

Last year I grew garlic- great stuff, BUT I evidently missed harvesting one. This year we have warmed up all of a sudden, and I noticed this clump of foliage coming up. I thought it was green onions...
Most vegetable gardeners and cooks love garlic. If you haven't grown it before but would like to, now's the time to start learning the basics and order seed garlic for planting this fall. By this time next year you'll be proudly showing off your crop to friends and family, and using to prepare delicious recipes.
