My grandmother used to place seeds that needed a chilly time to germinate, in the refrigerator. I wonder if garlic might do well to have a time in the refrigerator before planting in the garden? I had an amusing thought of pots of planted garlic in our family refrigerator! Any thoughts on such an approach?

Thanks leilani I have put my email add out there , but not many use it, sometimes when you say what is happening 2 heads a re better than one, but yes I know what you are saying is true, with our spiraling foodprices saving at present is an impossibility , but I keep it in mind! thanks, I know a lot of fellow gardeners own their own home, I dont so with a little pension there isn,t anything to crow about!......

I see here that there has been a discussion about garlic.  I found this on one of my google alerts this morning: 

The article is about growing in the Pacific Northwest, but covers everything and anything you want to know about garlic.  We have many different garden zones in our state.  I noticed that some garlics must have extended periods of 40 degrees or colder; which I do not have here in the "banana belt" of oregon where our winters average about 50-55 on most days.  It can even reach as high as 60+.

Dear Karen , thank you for your kind words, I am not suprised that lady soared, I am still very able bodied,and he is feeble and a lot of this is his own fault , all the ideas I had and he to we couldn,t do ,being on a pension the entire marriage you just cant, money is always scarce, but one of the things I really hated was when he told me he is going to have his pension in an account by himself, Yes on the average prior to that I always paid things and pocketmoney didn,t exist, he honestly accused me of saving behind his back I wish I did but didn,t , just yesterday he said when we do seperate I want you to bring all the things out of storage and we sort it out than I dont trust you, and I am still stuck with him and the cost of the storage all by myself, he only ever paid half appx 3 times, its 115 a month but there are so many things I dont want to loose so I have to have it!. I used to be happy go lucky not anymore, now I ran around in daggy cloth and barley a smile on my face, I wish so much something came my way so I have my own land , but you never know , I have asked internet marketers to help me , put the site up so it  earns than teach me , no they cant be bothered and everyone of there emails wants money for systems programs etc, I cant even a lot sound ok, there is one I could have signed up but needed a usa ph no for only one interview , so I missed out on that avenue too, when I got my horse  he told me I should have married my horse , and you know I would be a lot happier because he ,s beautiful and gentle and considerate I can hang around his big neck and he stands stockstill watching so Am i and I truly think he loves it, its not the safest thing to do , but we bonded so much now where my car if of the rd I havent seen him for at least 4 month and miss him terrible ,,,, anyway life goes on, i wont give up not on your life , anyway thanks for listenig to me, on a previous blog I left my email add I am on lots of diff. groups prop. veggies , if you like and wish use it  I look foreward to hearing from you Miko

My heart goes out to you, Miko.  I had an 80+ friend years ago with a similar situation.  Her husband died and the woman was FREE!  I met her at a local college where we were both studying.  She was inspirational in that her spirit did not get beaten down.  She soared left on her own.  I see you, Miko, as a wild bird refusing to buckle under to what someone else has in mind for you.  You might consider that your husband is suffering from some form of dementia along with being mean spirited.   I had a couple of days without rain.  I have an interesting new garden task.  I recently put my 92 yr. old mother on medical marijauna; which is a dream come true giving her life without pain.  I am now nursing my seedlings and learning the culture of growing the plant.  Needless to say, I am not into using it myself as I love getting things done around here and find I will just sit if I allow a glass of wine too early in the day and horrors if I eat one of her cookies! LOL  My seedlings look happy and through them I am learning more about my other plants and what they need as babies in the greenhouse.  They are now snuggled comfortably in their new 4 inch pots soaked in both a bit of root booster and seedling juice.  I've been watching videos on websites to see what to do for them.
