Follow this step-by-step guide that takes you through the growing process from clove to bulb

For gardeners who enjoy eating the “stinking rose” as well as garlic scapes (flower buds), there’s nothing quite like planting your own cloves of garlic. Furthermore, some of us avid connoisseurs enjoy experimenting with  purchasing different varieties of garlic and seeing which types do best in our hardiness zones, soil type and microclimate growing conditions.

Here at Spiritwood, the 100-acre farm north of Quyon, Quebec (50 km northwest of Ottawa), that my husband and I own, we’ve been planting garlic for years in our organic, raised-bed veggie garden.

Ancient landslides offer clues to powerful earthquake that rattled Ottawa

Categories: 

Very close to 1000 AD, an earthquake estimated at a magnitude of 6.1 — or possibly stronger — shook this region enough to cause 10 major landslides.

One of them, at Quyon, covered an area of 31 square kilometres stretching back from the Ottawa River along the Quyon River valley.

And scientist Gregory Brooks, who studied the slides, says the same seismic conditions are present today.

That means a big earthquake like the one Brooks studies, though very rare, could happen again.
