Garlic Update (a little late)

I don't think I'm going to try the garlic experiment again this year. The plants grew really strong but the bulbs never developed.

This is a picture of my entire garlic harvest from the hydroponics last winter. I planted the biggest cloves I had (none less than an inch long) and the largest clove is less than half that size.

Instead I have my two hoop houses (NOT poop houses, lol) and I'm growing apricots from seed. I still want an indoor garden, but I haven't had much success no matter what I try to grow. Tomatoes and squash got too big, garlic and onions don't bulb up. Lettuce grows long and spindly then dies. The peach tree got infested with bugs and died. Herbs grew for a while then keeled over.

So much for my green thumb. :)
