How to Grow Ginger - Studies say ginger’s peak flavor arrives at 265 days, And if you start the ginger inside in late winter, that one root can produce four times that amount by fall! (Which I AM!) But you’ll only get this long growing season by starting your ginger indoors as a houseplant early in the year and then transplanting it in your garden in late spring, once the weather’s warmed.
Garlic 101: Our garden came with lots of free growing garlic-the old owners used to store the harvested stuff in the garage (after almost a year we are just now getting the stink out). This site explains how to propagate it, harvest it, plant it-you name it. Very good info here. I plan to keep ours growing, and planting more, supposed to help keep the animals away. We shall see, it's just not going in the garage!! ha!
