We eat more garlic than I grow, I bought a $3 bag of purple garlic at Walmart it had about 6 or 7 garlic bulbs in the bag. This morning I diced a whole bulb about 15 cloves of garlic for spaghetti sauce. That garlic was worse that onions it got in my eyes so bag I had to wash my hands and face with soap 2 times and rinse eye with water several times then eye drops. I never thought about this before but garlic is sorta like onions, some are stronger than others. Sometimes I see, white, yellow, brown, purple, skin garlic in the store.
I am getting ready to plant fall crops like garlic so this year I am going to plant several different types to learn what grows best and what tasted best.
This is how I learned which tomatoes we like best and which corn we like best 30 years ago by planting lots of variety until I learn what we like then plant only what we like after that. The garden has always been our 1 year supply of food. Very soon I will plant about 200 to 250 garlic plants.
What do you know about different types of garlic?
