What can you do with the greens? Make phyto-plastic? Store foodstuffs? Can they be eaten? There are a lot of demands for foods, and vegetables that can be used in other ways.

Just a very tiny piece of garlic in your dog's food repels ticks and fleas.

Will C - YA! And just think, it's legal! Probably have to burn incense to keep down the garlic smell. I mean I like garlic and its smell, but, you know, there are people who say, "I can't stand the smell of garlic! It makes me wanna' yak!" Food wimps. But getting blasted on garlic is a healthy high, no?

Didn't see the video yet, but always knew that in a regular diet, one begins to be resistant to mosquitos biting, rather it repels them and no it's not enough to repel people as one would think. Garlic in the diet regular like this will begin to turn gray hair to brunette or perhaps back to your original natural color. We used to use garlic in saltwater frozen fish foods for reef aquariums; as said it fights harmful bacteria and probably viruses too, or beefs up the constitution of the fish against disease. Just saying.

use it a lot when cooking. gave my sheltie garlic tablets from Springtime Inc. in New Jersey. 2 a day. would mash 1 up and mix it in her food. fed her twice a day. she lived to be 12. never a flea or tick. you start out with a 1/4 the first week at each meal. 1/2 the second week at each meal. and do so until it is 1 at each meal . you do need to build the amount up slowly each week as not to make them sick. she loved it. this is a great company and they have many other great natural products for animals and humans. check them out. i make nothing from them. just that i love dogs and their products work. sent with love and friendship.

Vicki Dani ... That's because it's a very close zombie secret.. It's not actually the garlic that stops them in their tracks, it's those raw garlic farts what get's to them and that's why it's their secret fear.

It helps keep colestrol levels down, the leaves are good to make a tea to help break up a cold and flu with.There are so many good uses besides flavoring, to many to list. I grow it myself to use for many things.
