    So I don't know if it's just me, but I hated how long it takes to stand there and peel garlic for my goats. I only have four goats, but that's eight cloves of garlic every time I wanted give it to them and sometimes if the peels were really clingy it would take me 15-20 minutes to peel all the garlic I needed. Not any more though!! Voila!

    I found this on amazon for around $5 and it works great! Just pop a clove in, roll it on a hard surface, and it's peeled! Takes like five seconds a clove. It's fun too. Just thought I'd share since it makes my life easier. :D

    Wouldn't they just eat peeling and all?

    Lol, you have officially impressed the garlic queen!

    That’s awesome!!

    I love peeling garlic, I just stick a nail in and it usually pops off in one clean layer. However, this is very cool!!

    Usually the nail technique works, but recently we have had some very thin papery skins. I think this will come in especially handy as my herd grows.
    For some reason my goats don't seem to like the peel. Seem weird, but it's true.

    That’s pretty cool! Might be useful for cooking too.

    Thanks for sharing! We have one from Pampered Chef but haven't used it yet! I’ve never given garlic to my goats, but I probably should!

    For those of you who plant garlic, what’s the secret?:what: Mine won’t come up...

    What time of year did you plant it and where did you get your seed garlic? We bought ours just at the store in the produce section, but it has to be organic or it could be sprayed with something to stop it from sprouting.

    Plant it in the fall (Sept./Oct.). Cover it with mulch. It will put its root down and come up in the spring.

    Thank you so much for the tips! Honestly I don’t remember where we bought ours. :haha: We bought it in cloves though. I’ll definitely remember to plant it in the Fall! We planted in the Spring last time.
    Thank you!
