Seems like everyone wants to get into gardening here lately. I'm not sure why, considering the stuff that runs out at the grocery store is mostly meat, eggs, milk and apparently tp. Either way I dig it! I've always wanted to get a backyard garden going but I've just never had the time. Well I think it's safe to say now is as good a time as any. I'm not one to shy away from hard work, and trust me it's plenty hard, but there are some short cuts I've found that are fun for the kids and save some time on certain grows. The one we tried is garlic and I can honestly say it's the easiest thing I've ever grown. Garlic. If you have some left over garlic clove just grab an empty water bottle, cut the top with the curve off, set an iron in low and go over the top to smooth the edges. After you've got your water bottle prepared fill it with water and place the bulb on top with the bottom just about 1/2 an inch submerged. Set it in a window seal and in a matter of literally days the roots with do thier thing and you can transplant it either to a pot or your garden. We're trying green onions (scallions) next and from what I've read their the Neverending Story of plants.
