Garlic - worth the trouble?
Hey all, just wanted to ask an opinion. I have a vegetable garden in which I mostly grow hard-to-find plants, such as exotic hot peppers, heirloom tomatoes, funky-colored carrots, etc. Basically, I grow stuff I can't buy at the supermarket locally.
But I also love garlic. Someone told me that home-grown garlic is much better than store bought. I personally have no gripe with market garlic, at least where I get it. I've never even considered growing it myself, until now.
Being Scottish, I am definitely asking myself why I would go to the trouble of growing garlic when I can easily buy a head for 17 cents. Is there any noticeable advantage to home-grown, flavour wise?
