@GwenfarsGarden sure am!! i'm gonna get 30 heads this year on starters from friends last year, i think i'll expand that for next year :)
@GwenfarsGarden several of them will go into planting, many will probably be swapped with friends, some can get pickled, i agreed to collaborate on garlic bread with a new baker.. yeah, 30 will be great :)
80 sounds like great number! i know i have at least three different types in mine but they're all kinda mixed up at this point 🙃
@GwenfarsGarden (also garlic is such a good morale boost for me, especially during the early season when i'm impatient or despairing about delicate seedlings, i can always look over at the garlic patch and trust that there will be something to eat eventually)
@rabbithearth OMG, absolutely this. I'm always telling people to grow the autumn-sown ones for this exact reason. Just knowing they are in there cheers me up no end.
@rabbithearth swapping is good. In the past I've done big garlic giveaways, but this year it will be a smaller one, because I'm not growing as much as in the past (like last year I grew about 120!)
Tbh I don't notice a lot difference in flavour, apart from those that are really strong. For me it's soil conditions and storage that matter the most. I got given the 8 types about 10 years ago and have kept growing them on.
@Cobalt ugh, somehow I missed this. If you cannot get hold of any and are in the EU, I could send you a few cloves in Autumn
