well i just havent seen this shit before

If I was your parents I would demand my taxes back as they clear weren't spent on your education.
maybe, im just not used to shit growing out of my food while its in my fridge, so i thought i'd ask
pretty sure im not the first person to not remember tiny details from schol lessons 2 decades go
i thought it was a spice
Ignore all other posts imma tell it to you straight.
Unlike some plants, when planting garlic and other plants in the onion-family, you don't put a seed in the ground, you put the actual onion. Tulips are like that. (Potatos as well, just not same family. Have you ever heard of a potato-seed?)
The sprout just mean your garlic is healthy and possibly got some moisture on it, starting the growing process.
It's 100% safe to eat. This is what vegetables do. They grow. You don't need to cut a huge chunk of it off, you can most likely eat the sprout as well.
Spice? The fu... You know what? I don't blame you. City folk (or at least those who've never had a garden) don't know a lot about nature so it isn't your fault. Just become more scientific literate so that you never feel like a dummy again. I recommend starting with biology, then chemistry and after that you'll know what to learn next.
thanks man, yeah now i've learned it then
im just gonna cut it off to be safe anyway but yeah
I havent touched my garlic in a while, and i open the fridge and see this shit, so I was kinda confused, thougth i'd ask. Better safe than sorry
if I had my own garden i would plant the shit out of it, tomatoes paprika onions garlic cucumber lots of mushrooms but yeah i dont have a garden

Spice is something you make from certain plants.
Black pepper is a spice. It is also the berries of the pepper tree. The berries is what you plant in the ground to make a plant, which will grow into a tree.
Other spices comes from other parts of plants, like cinnamon comes from the inner bark of the cinnamon trees.
You must be American.
Garlic is bulb.
Its the plants food store that allows the plant to remain dormant through winter.
In you case the bulb has decided to try and grow, the garlic is still garlic just cut the new bit off.
