Growing a garden is a lot of learning what you should not do. In the fall, I will plant the garlic in a different place. In the spring, I will change the way I plant onions. This year the harvest was better than last year, and I feel good about it. I have always seen beautiful braided onions and garlic in pictures and wanted to try it. With a little help from the internet, I did it! They aren't perfect, but I love them. I'll let them dry outside a little longer and then move them to the cool basement pantry.
