Garlic for Your Health and for Your Taste Buds

I’m assuming I don’t need to tell you all of the health benefits of garlic (but in case you don’t know, click here).  As the weather starts to change  and get a little cooler, garlic is a great immune system booster - keep it on hand and make sure to cook with it... A LOT!

This is a picture of some of the garlic we grew in our garden this year.  It was my first time growing garlic - I had never thought to grow it before, and when I finally wanted to grow it, I realized I needed to plan ahead and plant in the fall.

So, last fall, I finally planned ahead.  I ordered garlic from Seeds of Change.  If you haven’t checked out their website, it’s a great resource for buying organic seeds and some seedlings, as well as a ton of articles and videos to learn about organic gardening, seed saving, food storage, and more (link below).

I was so excited to harvest garlic from our own garden.  I’ve been cooking with it all summer and wishing I would have planted more so I would have it through the winter.  This fall I will plan even better, and plant more for next year.

If you would also like to plan ahead, check out Seeds of Change’s website here.  Now is the time to order your garlic and plant it for next year’s harvest.  Don’t miss out!!
