Thanks! We've been working 5 garden areas pretty consistently these past few years.

I just wanted to point out that a master gardener has qualifications. Course work and training, volunteer hours, testing/exams for certification, ongoing volunteer hours and education in subsequent years, all according to the particular university/college extension service requirements. I think that all that gives a master gardener a well rounded view of gardening and more experience. It's impressive!

Thanks so much, blissful! We have quite an admiration society going here!

Working the help desk is one of my favorite ways to volunteer. I always learn something new when people bring in a plant or bug problem.

GotGarlic, I know another master gardener in Wisconsin. They are the most helpful informative friendly people I know! Our garlic will be harvested in the next 2-3 weeks, we have 4 kinds this year. I bet you have 'gotgarlic' too!

I do, but I live on a small city lot, so not a lot of space for it. I plant it whenever it sprouts in the kitchen. Right now, I have about 10 heads curing. It's clearly not enough to feed my habit

I recently took care of a Master Gardener...he was thrilled to help us with our garden questions.

Next summer we are getting a vegetable garden going over at Mom's, I want to grow our own garlic. Any tips?

My knowledge is specific to zone 8 Here's info from Wyoming's extension service. Looks like it's a fall-planting crop, even there. You can plant it in containers, since it doesn't grow very deep.
