What to do with sprouting garlic?
We eat a lot of garlic so we usually buy a bunch in those web sacks. The only problem is, the garlic sprouts even if kept in a cold, dark place. So what to do? My wife wanted to see if the garlic would flower, like forcing paperwhites. She placed the garlic cloves on pebbles in a nice container filled with water up to the bulb end. The garlic immediately grew quite rapidly but I don't think we'll see it bloom.
It is nice to have some greenery in the house though and I think it looks rather interesting and nice in a minimalist kind of way. It was certainly worth the experiment.
