If you’re wondering when to plant garlic, or how to grow garlic in containers, you’ll enjoy this next Homesteading Basics video.
I don’t know if you’ve been watching the series that I’ve been doing on container planting, but the container you’ll see in this video is one of my favorites. What I love to grow in this every year is a good crop of garlic.
Generally, garlic is an overwinter crop. I’m in central Texas, and we typically plant garlic in October or November. At the time of filming this video, it was early September—so I had about a month before I needed to plant the garlic. So I was wondering … “What can I plant? I’ve only got a month!”
What To Grow If You’ve Only Got 30 Days!
I’ll tell you the best crop to grow if you’ve only got 30 days. Radishes. They are so great. They grow anywhere, and they grow fast. They don’t need a huge amount of fertility.
In my next version of Homesteading Basics, I’ll show you how to cook and prepare them in a way that takes away the heat and actually makes them a really wonderful food.
