A word on garlic: When lockdown first began, like many of you, I freaked out at the thought of not being able to buy fresh produce. Garlic was a big one, for me. I like the natural juice and oils of fresh garlic in my food and not powdered garlic.
So my son, an executive chef, told me to root my own by placing the bottom half of the garlic in water. Once it roots, plant in a pot. When it starts to get green leafy shoots, plant in the ground. I did and the results are delicate, juicy garlic bulbs!
