A spring treat

A few years ago I discovered something new at one of the farm stands I frequent. They had some early harvest garlic for sale so I bought some to try and instantly fell in love. Every year since then I make sure to plant some extra garlic to harvest early. I harvest them when they are a bit thicker than a pencil and slice up to add to most anything, or roast on the bbq. If you are a garlic lover like I am, you will be smitten with the green garlic flavor of these. They are divine! The nice thing about them, also, is that you can just use regular old store bought soft neck garlic and plant them very close together since they won't be around long enough to need much room.
