  2. Thanks Tandy, this was a really interesting read! I tried pickling garlic once, but wasn’t overly thrilled with the results. And the Russian garlic is amazing to look at – each corm is the size of a fist – but I don’t like the flavour as much as other varieties..

    • I am also not that keen on the Russian garlic. Yesterday I got some baby garlic from the farmers market – pretty and purple skinned with a really strong garlic scent. I am going to plant some of those 🙂

  3. I bet the pickled garlic would be wonderful with scrambled eggs…I actually eat raw cloves at times with mine….wut…keeps the vampires away.

    Well, okay, it keeps Everyone away but, I haven’t had my second coffee yet. so, I sort of like the solitude.

    • I am not keen on raw garlic, and so use the pickled one rather where the garlic won’t be cooked 🙂

  6. hi Tandy. you may want to look into planting rocambole garlic, an heirloom cultivar which is, I believe, of the hardneck variety. it has a sharper, more intense flavor than normal garlic and is the best variety, in my opinion.

    more information here: http://www.gourmetgarlicgardens.com/rocamboles.htm

  8. Since garlic is my most favorite ingredient, and since my daughter includes garlic in her garden, I’m forwarding this link in hopes that she’ll order some of those more exotic hardneck varieties. Thanks for sharing such an enlightening post.

    • the snakes are only a problem when you are picking the tomatoes from the bush they are sleeping under – which has happened to me a few times!

  12. Hi, I haven’t heard about garlic being a deterrent for snakes before, fascinating!. I know lots of gardeners who also make a weak garlic tea and spary it on certain crops to stop aphids and the like.
