I don't actually store my garlic in the fridge because they can last for weeks at room temperature if you keep the bulbs whole. In any case, I always have garlic and ginger on hand.
These particular garlic bulbs I got in my CSA (community supported agriculture) order, so they're fresh, local - and frankly, huge! A single clove of this garlic is bigger than three regular cloves of garlic you can get at major supermarkets. The ginger I got from a little grocery store next door that sells local, organic produce. From curry and kimchi to gingerbread and garlic butter - I'm well stocked up for that and everything in between!
