I have a question about the recipe "Asparagus & Green Garlic Soup w/ Parmesan Croutons" from coffeefoodwritergirl. What is Green Garlic? An immature garlic? Where can you find it?

It's young garlic, and it's something that will appear in the farmers markets sometime soonish, warm weather permitting! here's a bit more about it : http://well.blogs.nytimes...
Depending on where you live, it may be hard to find – so grow your own! Plant cloves of garlic pointy side up and when they look like scallions – voilà, green garlic! You can do this in containers or the ground. This might help. http://www.gourmetsleuth...
Was does your friend and mine, Patrice Newell, say? www.patricenewell.com.au - she grows the most amazing organic garlic. I bought a whole box and have been busily preserving it in oil to last me through the winter. I note she quoted one of your recipes in her last newletter. She has just closed now because the garlic season here has drawn to a close. It is a small world after all ... to quote the late Mr Sherman.
