How to Grow, Cure & Store Garlic at Home


Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow at home, and growing it yourself means you can be sure you're reaping the full health benefits of garlic while ensuring your garlic is safe and natural. Learn how to grow, cure and store garlic at home for good eating all year long!Garlic is a staple in most kitchens, and ours is no exception! This pungent little bulb adds flavour to so many different dishes, and if you ask me you can never have too much;)

It also supports good overall health and immunity and can be used to treat various illnesses and ailments including colds and flu, bacterial infections (garlic is a natural antibiotic), yeast infections, heart problems and high blood pressure.

Garlic is also packed with cancer fighting compounds and is said to be one of the best foods to help prevent and lower the risk of cancer. Talk about a superfood!

In the garden, garlic helps ward off pests and fungus reducing any need for chemical sprays. It’s also one of the easiest plants to grow, and while it does typically need as much time in the ground as a baby needs in the womb before it’s ready for harvest, it requires very little effort to grow and maintain.

Before I dive into the details, here is a quick checklist to help you get growing at home:

 

Garlic Grower’s Checklist

  • Select good, local seed garlic to plant at home. Do not plant garlic from the store as it may be treated. Only plant untreated organic garlic in your home garden.
  • Plant in October for a July harvest for best results. If you missed the October planting and want to plant in the spring, plant as soon as the soil can be worked but expect a smaller harvest.
  • Plant garlic cloves root side down (pointy side up). Plant cloves about 4 inches apart and 2 inches deep.
  • Water and mulch to help keep them moist and insulated over the winter. 
  • Hardneck varieties will produce garlic scapes around June. Both hardneck and softneck varieties are ready for harvest in mid to late July.
  • To cure, lay garlic out on some screen, wire or mesh to allow good air flow on all sides. Keep out of direct sunlight. Allow to cure and dry for several weeks.
  • Store in a cool, dry place and use all year round for your culinary and health needs!

 

 

How to Grow Garlic At Home

October is the best time of year to get your garlic in the ground if you want to enjoy a harvest the following summer. While it is possible to plant in the spring and still get a harvest, you will get bigger, tastier heads of garlic if you plant in the fall and allow them to overwinter. 

You can grow garlic just about anywhere. We have grown in raised beds and directly in the ground, but garlic is also well suited for container gardening and can be grown in a large enough container right on your deck or balcony if you’re in an apartment. Garlic doesn’t require a ton of space to grow and does well in most conditions so feel free to try growing in whatever space you have.

Before planting you’ll need to get your hands on some seed garlic. Now, seed garlic is simply regular garlic (you plant the cloves), but it is typically a variety of garlic that has been grown locally and organically and the bulbs have been carefully selected for replanting because they are the strongest, largest bulbs. Basically they’re the cream of the crop so they’ve been selected to “reproduce.”

If you can’t get any seed garlic, at least makes sure you are using local, organic, untreated garlic. We missed out on seed garlic this year as it was sold out everywhere by the time we were ready to plant, so I selected some of the best bulbs I could find from a local, organic producer at our market. We haven’t yet grown enough to replant our own, otherwise I would have simply selected seed garlic from the garlic we grew last year. But since I wanted to go for a larger crop this year (and eat the garlic we grew) I purchased in from a local farmer.

DO NOT plant garlic from any old supermarket.

Often times the garlic you’ll find at the larger supermarkets is imported from other countries and is treated to last longer on the shelves since it needs to travel a long ways and sit on supermarket shelves for some time (another reason why it’s better to buy local or grow your own). Treated garlic often doesn’t grow, and even if it does it can ruin your soil and actually prevent anything from growing in it. Plus, if you’re going for organic, treated garlic is not something you want to introduce to your garden. Just don’t.

 

Hardneck vs. Softneck Garlic

When selecting your garlic, also know that there are many different varieties, but there are two main types of garlic: hardneck and softneck. We grow hardneck garlic here in B.C. (I actually have never seen the soft neck variety available). But often times you will get a choice. Both have their pros and cons.

Hardneck garlic is garlic with a hard stem that needs to be broken off after is has cured. The garlic can then be stored as individual heads in a well aerated place. Softneck garlic has a soft stem that can be braided and you can then hang bunches of bulbs in your kitchen or pantry. This is probably the more aesthetic way to go and arguably easier for storing correctly, but the drawback to softneck garlic is that you don’t get the bonus harvest that hardneck varieties give in the early summer.

Usually around June, hardneck garlic will send up something called a garlic scape from their stem. Garlic scapes are essentially the garlic flower that, if left to blossom and go to seed, will produce seeds that can be replanted (but take way longer to grow than growing garlic from cloves).

You can harvest the scapes while the flower is still just a tiny bud. The scapes are edible and have a mild garlic flavour but with a green bean/asparagus texture.

Garlic scapes are excellent sautéed, turned into a pesto or -my personal favourite- pickled! For more information on harvesting and using garlic scapes, check out the following video.

 

How to Plant Garlic

Alright, back to planting garlic… Once you have some good organic seed garlic, it’s time to plant. We usually plant on Thanksgiving weekend in October (we’re Canadian). But as long as you get it in the ground before the first hard frost, you should be okay. If you plant in the spring, you can sow the garlic cloves as soon as the soil can be worked. Expect a slightly smaller harvest though.

Before planting, you’ll want to work some organic matter into the soil, especially if you’ve recently harvested a summer crop that was growing in the same spot. Garlic is a heavy feeder, which means it likes nutrient-rich soil, so either mix in some compost from home or from the store and give it a few days before planting your garlic.

Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow at home, and growing it yourself means you can be sure you're reaping the full health benefits of garlic while ensuring your garlic is safe and natural. Learn how to grow, cure and store garlic at home for good eating all year long!

To plant, I use a trowel to “draw” lines in the soil where I want my rows to be. Then break apart the heads and plant each individual clove about 2 inches deep and 4 inches apart along the rows. Plant each clove with the root side down (pointy side up). I plant them all first and then cover with dirt. This helps me to make sure I didn’t miss any.

Once they’re in the ground and covered with soil, give them a good, deep watering and then mulch with whatever you have access to. I mulch with yard trimmings from our neighbour’s yard since he has a massive pile of grass clippings piled up from mowing his acreage. I just load up a wheelbarrow (or a few large handfuls) and cover the soil where my garlic is planted with a bed of grass mulch. This acts as a blanket, helping to insulate it through the winter. Mulching also helps keep nutrients from eroding and keeps the ground moist between watering.

You can use leaves as mulch if you like since you likely have lots of fallen leaves laying around in October. Or you could use wood chips, newspaper clippings, sawdust or alfalfa hay… Pretty much whatever you have lying around. You don’t need to mulch, but it’s best if you do for this overwintering crop.

Once you’ve planted, watered and mulched, you can pretty much set it and forget it when it comes to garlic. As long as you get enough rain over the fall, winter and spring months, you don’t have to do much to maintain and care for your garlic crop. It pretty much takes care of itself.

 

How to Harvest Garlic

In the early spring you will begin to see little shoots of green emerging from the soil. These will continue to grow up and up until they become very tall. In early summer (usually in June) hardneck garlic varieties will produce garlic scapes. Again, for a tutorial on how to harvest and use the scapes, check out this video.

Once you’ve harvested your scapes from hardneck garlic, continue to allow the stems and garlic to grow for about another month. Typically garlic is ready around mid to late July. You’ll know it’s ready to harvest once the leaves on hardneck garlic begin to turn brown on the ends, or on softneck garlic, the stems will actually fall over.

Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow at home, and growing it yourself means you can be sure you're reaping the full health benefits of garlic while ensuring your garlic is safe and natural. Learn how to grow, cure and store garlic at home for good eating all year long!

If you’re trying to guess how big your garlic heads will be, the number of leaves on each plant gives a pretty good indication (more leaves = more layers = bigger garlic). Mild winters will produce bigger garlic as it is able to grow for longer in the winter. Our garlic last year was on the small side because we had an abnormally cold winter that completely stopped things from growing for a while.

When you are ready to harvest, you can simply tug at the base of the stem and pull the garlic right out if your soil is loose enough. You might need a hand trowel to help you loosen the soil around each bulb as you pull it out, but be careful not to puncture the garlic as it won’t store for long if the flesh has bee ruptured.

It’s a good idea to stop watering a couple weeks before harvesting as this helps to give the garlic a head start on curing, which is an important next step in the garlic growing process.

 

How to Cure & Store Garlic At Home

Once you’ve harvested all of your garlic, it’s time to cure. Curing simply means allowing it to dry out enough that it forms those flaky, papery outer layers that will protect it and keep it from going moldy in storage. This step is very important if you expect your garlic to last you through the winter (or any length of time).

First, dust off any excess dirt, but don’t worry about getting all the dirt off. As it dries it will crumble off easier. Whatever you do, don’t wash off the dirt. Keep the heads as dry as possible and don’t introduce any added moisture.

The best way to cure garlic is to lay the bulbs out in a single layer on top of some mesh or screen material that will allow the garlic to breathe on all sides. You’ll want to find a place out of direct sunlight that gets good air circulation. 

Garlic is one of the easiest crops to grow at home, and growing it yourself means you can be sure you're reaping the full health benefits of garlic while ensuring your garlic is safe and natural. Learn how to grow, cure and store garlic at home for good eating all year long!

We spread out some chicken wire that we suspend from the shelves under the lean-to beside our garage. Then we lay all the garlic out on the chicken wire and allow it to cure here in the shade of the open lean-to. A covered deck, porch or balcony works too. If you really don’t have a good shady spot, you could even put them under a table or tent outside. Just something to keep the sun from beaming down directly on them.

Allow your garlic to cure for several weeks (I usually leave mine out until the end of August or early September). Once cured, brush off any remaining dirt, cut off the hardneck stems (and braid the softneck stems) and then store in your pantry or kitchen. Be mindful about where you hang any garlic you’ve braided as you want it to stay dry and well-aerated. So don’t hang it directly above your stove as the heat and humidity from cooking and boiling liquids on your stovetop can affect the shelf-life of your garlic.

Your garlic should last you well through the winter if you’ve cured it correctly and stored it in a cool, dry place. So enjoy it and eat lots because it’s good for your health! And don’t forget to get your next crop in the ground in time for the following year. This is definitely something you’ll want to plant year after year once you see how easy and rewarding it is to grow garlic at home!

      Garlic is a great crop for beginning gardeners or gardeners who are “getting back into it” as it’s so easy to grow! Hit up your local garden or seed and feed store to get some good local seed garlic! As long as you get it in the ground before the first hard frost you should be fine:)

What’s your favourite food preservation method??

For Angi Schneider of @schneiderpeeps, the answer is pressure canning, hands-down.

The fact is, there are many ways to preserve food, and each of them has its place and serves its purpose. But the only preservation method that allows you to preserve full meals that are ready to eat straight out of the jar is pressure canning.

Water bath canning allows you to preserve high acid foods like fruits, pickles, jams and jellies.

Fermenting adds beneficial bacteria, increases the nutritional value and adds a distinct (and acquired) flavour to foods.

Dehydrating and freeze drying are great long term storage preservation methods, and are a great option for preppers, hunters or anyone who needs to carry their food preps with them.

Pressure canning, on the other hand, allows you to have jars of food ready to serve and eat at a moment’s notice. It’s great to hand on hand during an emergency, but it also serves as practical, every day food that you and your family will actually eat.

Whether it’s a busy weeknight and you have no time to cook, you’ve got unexpected company or you find yourself in the middle of an emergency or power outage, having jars of healthy, homemade food –including full meals– on hand always comes in handy.

Angi and I sat down to chat about the many benefits of pressure canning, and about her brand new book Pressure Canning For Beginners And Beyond in an interview for the fall issue of Modern Homesteading Magazine (out now).

For the past week or so, I’ve been sharing a new morning routine I've been committing to...

It's the simple act of lighting a candle to start each day.

In this age of unnatural blue light emanating from our screens, fluorescent and even LED lighting from overhead lights and lamps, it can be quite a shock to the system to go from sleeping in complete darkness to flipping on the bright lights and checking email on your smartphone first thing in the a.m.

By simply lighting a candle and allowing your eyes a minute or two to adjust before turning on the lights or checking a screen, you have the power to create a much calmer and more peaceful start to your day, and that has lasting effects that can and will stay with you all day long.

I know I’m not the only one who can benefit from this simple but powerful morning ritual, so I decided to start a challenge to encourage others to do the same.

If you'd like to participate, grab a candle and a pack of matches (or a lighter) and commit to lighting a candle to start your day for as many days as you can during the month of October.

Every time you share a photo of your candle/morning ritual on Instagram posts or stories and tag me @thehouseandhomestead and use the hashtag #candlelitmorning, you'll be entered to win a naturally-scented candle of your choice from Plant Therapy!

This being said, I know that good quality candles aren't exactly cheap, but you can save a tone of money by learning how to make your own!

If you're interested in learning how to make your own all-natural soy candles with essential oils at home, I'm currently offering my DIY Scented Soy Candles Masterclass for FREE as part of the Handmade Holiday Giveaway, hosted by my friend and fellow Vancouver Islander Diana Bouchard of @wanderinghoofranch

A professional teacher turned homeschooling mom of two, Allyson Speake was spinning her wheels trying to keep up with her family’s fast-paced modern lifestyle until she made the intentional decision to slow down and quit her job as a teacher to stay home and educate her children at home. Nowadays she helps others do the same!

If you’ve ever stumbled across her Instagram page @tanglewoodhollow, you’ve likely been met with beautiful photos of children playing and exploring in the woods, nature crafts, treasures and toadstools galore. Her passion for slow, seasonal living and nature-based education shows in everything she posts!

But her inspiring Instagram page is just a glimpse into what she has to offer other homeschoolers, teachers, parents and guardians from all walks of life who want to bring a little more seasonal magic into their children’s lives, and who know that the best classroom is the great outdoors.

I sat down with her for the latest issue of Modern Homesteading Magazine and she shared some real nuggets of wisdom for anyone with young children (not just homeschoolers!)

In the interview, Allyson shares that “on average three-year-olds can identify 100 different brand logos, and that increases to 300-400 by age 10.” If that’s not reason enough to turn off the TV and get outside, I don’t know what is!

“Whatever children are exposed to, they are able to soak it up like sponges, but they aren’t getting that exposure to nature,” she says.

🛠 “Even the simplest tools can empower people to do great things.”
- Biz Stone

The other day I asked you what the most valuable asset is on your homestead, and I shared that mine is my dear husband @thehumblehandyman

Everyone who knows him knows he can build and repair just about anything. It’s a true talent, but he’s also spent years learning and sharpening his skills.

But talent and skills are only half of the equation; You’ve gotta have the right tools for the job!

As homesteaders, our main mission in life is to become more self-sufficient, and that extends to building and repairing things at home. But whether you’re an expert handyman or a fledgling fixer-upper, you can't do the job if you don't have the right tools on hand.

If you’re just starting out and wondering what tools to invest in, The Humble Handyman and I put together a list of 15 essential tools that everyone should have on hand for minor repairs and odd jobs around the home (and homestead), along with tips on how to actually use each one.

Link in bio @thehouseandhomestead to check it out or go to https://thehouseandhomestead.com/15-essential-tools-home-toolkit/

Which of these tools do you already have?

Which ones are next on your list to invest in??

🪓 What’s the most valuable asset on your homestead?

For me, it’s this guy right here.

He was only away for two weeks, but that’s all the time it took for me to realize how much he brings to the table, and how valuable it is to have a live-in handyman on a homestead!

When our burner crapped out on our stove in the middle of a canning project last week, I had no idea how to fix it and was ready to buy a brand new stove, but luckily Ryan came home with all of his tools just a couple days later and fixed it for a fraction of the cost of buying a new stove.

When we were getting chickens, he built our chicken coop. When I wanted to put in new garden beds, he built them. Deck? Done! Firewood? Chopped! Bathroom? Remodelled! Car broken down? Fixed! (Did I mention he’s a trained mechanic too?)

If you don’t have your own handyman at home though, you can still learn the skills you need to become more self-sufficient when it comes to tackling new building projects and repairing and maintaining things at home.

I’m thrilled to announce that @thehumblehandyman now has his own regular feature in each issue of Modern Homesteading Magazine, where he’ll share simple steps you can take to increase your self-sufficiency by learning how to DIY all sorts of projects around your house and homestead.

In his debut feature, he shares 5 simple steps you can take this fall to help you prepare your house and homestead for the coming winter, all of which could save you time, money and effort during the season of rest.

Did you know you can now buy pumpkin spice ramen noodles, pumpkin spice Pringles, pumpkin spice macaroni and cheese, pumpkin spice sausages and even pumpkin spice dog treats?

It’s not exactly a stretch to say that we’ve taken the whole pumpkin spice craze a little bit too far.

But our obsession with pumpkin spice speaks to something much deeper than the flavour itself. (Let’s be honest, pumpkin spice ramen noodles sound gag-worthy).

The reason we tend to love pumpkin spice so much is because it triggers feelings of comfort and nostalgia; Memories of days spent with family at the pumpkin patch or around the Thanksgiving table. In short, pumpkin spice triggers our emotions as much as it tantalizes our taste buds.

But let’s be real, pumpkin spice Pringles ain’t it.

If you’re feeling all the fall vibes and craving a little pumpkin spice in your life right now, stick to the tried and true pumpkin spice latte, but ditch the expensive (and highly processed) commercial PSLs and make your own pumpkin spice syrup (with real pumpkin!) at home for a fraction of the cost! Keep it on hand to add to your coffees, teas and steamed milk beverages all Autumn long.

It’s super easy to make and will put pumpkin spice macaroni squarely in its place (and keep it there!)

I’ve been feeling pulled to slow down and retreat into my home lately; To turn off the news and social media and focus on the tangible things like lighting the wood stove, preserving the mountains of food still coming out of the garden, and slowly stirring a pot of soup as it cooks on the stovetop.

With everything that’s going on in the world right now, I know I’m not the only one feeling pulled toward hearth and home. This is a heavy time for all of us. No one person is meant to bear the weight of the world on their shoulders, but I've heard from so many people lately who say that's exactly how they've been feeling.

If you read my post from a few days ago, you know I’ve been feeling like that too, but luckily, I've learned how to soothe my soul in difficult times.

And so that's what I've been doing lately...

I've been focusing on the tangible things that I can control, like cooking meals and preserving food.

I've been lingering a little longer in the morning, taking time to sit by the river or sip my coffee in front of the wood stove before hurrying on with my day.

And I've been making a conscious effort to turn off the noise of the outside world and give my family and my own emotional health my full attention.

If you've also been feeling that pull to turn off all of the noise and immerse yourself in more nourishing, productive activities, I want to tell you about a collection of resources that will help you do just that.

I laid in bed the other night and couldn’t sleep.

I know that probably doesn’t sound out of the ordinary, especially considering the collective stress we’ve all been through over the past year and a half. But if I’m being totally honest, I’ve done a pretty good job of not letting it get to me.

I used to have really bad anxiety, and I made a conscious effort to learn how to manage it in (mostly) healthy, natural ways. I practice a lot of gratitude every day, and overall I’ve learned to deal with stress, anxiety and negative thoughts pretty well.

Lately though, I’ve been feeling the weight of it all. Aside from dealing with personal issues like our ongoing infertility/pregnancy loss journey and the every day stresses we all face, the bigger things have been feeling bigger and heavier lately; The mandates, the politics, the pushback, the arguments and attacks online, the divisiveness, and the seemingly never-ending pandemic that every single one of us is still dealing with in some capacity.

I’ve been seeing more and more calls to “choose a side.” I’ve witnessed my own close friends on both sides of the debate hurling insults at each other, defending their ground, and refusing to listen to each other’s valid points and concerns.

I’ve even witnessed a widening crack in the homesteading community, despite the fact that so many of our core values and beliefs align and are unique to us.

Despite the division, I would still argue that ALL of us have much more in common than not, and to see the divide continuing to deepen has started to get under my skin lately.
