Bob Anderson lives in the hill country of Bangs, Texas, where he grows several exceptional garlic varieties. His farm, Gourmet Garlic Gardens, has trialed more than 80 different varieties over the years. At any given time, you can purchase about 40 different kinds through his Web site, gourmetgarlicgardens.com. According to Bob, 'The age of designer garlic breath has arrived.'

If anyone loves garlic, it's Bob! Who else could be heard saying things like:

'Garlic is life.'

'Anytime you run into somebody who has garlic breath, that person is almost always smiling.'

'Garlic just makes you feel good.'

In the following video, he discusses the peaceful, easy feeling growing garlic brings him.
