If you have never grown garlic…why not?
It’s a very ‘independent’ thing to do. We are slowly disabled when we become dependent on others.
One of the best ways to be part of the solution is to decrease our needs from the grocery and the pharmacist, which bring questionable goods in from long distances. A MORE sustainable means of acquiring food is to purchase locally. The BEST way is to grow your own organically. Garlic needs no chemicals since there are virtually no pests.
