Keep garlic handy and add a decorative element to your kitchen when you make this ornament by braiding freshly picked heads of garlic.
Jim Gugliuzza demonstrated the craft during Lockport in Bloom on July 7 and 8 at his home at 684 Walnut St., Lockport, where he has a 700-foot lot with large vegetable gardens.
Gugliuzza planted 12 kinds of garlic this year. Garlic is usually harvested around July 10, but he pulled some early to show us his braiding technique, which you can see in the video.
We’ll share more of his tips on vegetable gardening in future issues.
