Vegetables - Garlic
( Originally Published Early 1900's )
Garlic is grown for the " cloves " or little bulbs which form a head at the top of the stems. These are inclosed in a white or rose-colored skin. These cloves are planted in early spring like onion sets. Good rich soil is essential. After the heads are well formed these are gathered with long stems and woven into braids for drying upon pegs. The cloves are used for flavoring.
