Yes, I've planted garlic like that outside where I used to live - but I live in the shade except for the kitchen window - gets some good morning sun.
Yes kitchennisse, the ginger grew several beautiful green leaves, it may have even given off a flower but I had to pull it up because of the cold. I understand though, that if you put ginger partially under the dirt, w ith some sticking up, in a pot on your windowsill, you will have a permanent supply of ginger, just wack off a piece above the surface of the dirt and it will continue to supply you. I have not tried that, I keep a piece in a basket on the counter and take what I need. It keeps for a rather long time.

here is a link that shows pictures of garlic, including garlic sprouts
(which are sold at our local farmer's market in the summer. I think they are the bud of the flower - not sure, but that's what they look like - not the sprout that comes up as the garlic ages.)


hope this helps!

I think I'd take a certain amount of the garlic and roast it. I love the flavor of roasted garlic and you can use it in so many ways. It keeps well in the refrigerator.

Whether or not I use the 'sprouts' of the garlic depends on what I'm cooking. Sometimes they can be a bit bitter, and sometimes I like that. Elephant garlic is usually pretty expensive, so I don't generally buy it because if I'm cooking garlic, I want vampires to flee. It is very mild compared to regular. Has anyone ever been to Gilroy? There are only two towns I know you can find with your nose, and if you hit Gilroy at the right time of year, honestly, the whole area smells like garlic. Heaven!! The other town used to be Honolulu on canning days, when the entire area smelled like someone was baking a pineapple upside down cake (I think that canning facility is now defunct. Boohoo).

I have chopped the stems from my garlic, by reason that onion and garlic are so similar. I've often used green onion tops to flavor and garnish foods.

The garlic stems, if cut while thender, have a strong garlic flavor and can be used in cooking. however, the raw garlic flavor is a bit strong for most garnishes. If chopped very find, an mixed well into something like mashed spuds, or a leafy-green salad, they should work.

They are edible. just be careful with them.
