Ms. Perry's Career Pathways class helps ward off vampires from our garden by planting garlic. They pushed the cloves (thank you for the donation Sellers Family of Little Spring Farm!) about 2 inches deep into the ground pointy end up, 6 inches apart from one another. Planting garlic around your garden is a chemical-free way to ward off pests like vampires and insects. Garlic will be mulched over immediately, and then ready to harvest in the spring. Garlic is a fun plant to watch (and eat!) all year long.
