My garlic shipment is here!!! I’m excited to get it in the grown a bit early this year. Maybe this week? (I was too late last year.) I have my potato bed dug and ready to go for the garlic. I’ll add a couple inches of compost, turn it under, and then its ready to plant.
e-how asked me to do a couple of videos on planting garlic. I am hoping to do these this week and will post links.
I ordered the garlic variety “Music” from Territorial.
I like to plant a full 12 x 3.5 ft bed (about 80 or so cloves) in my garden each year. This gives me enough to eat all year and plant for the next year. (My harvest this year was poor because I planted late and didn’t mulch.) I have 6 big heads saved from my harvest this year (mostly “Duganski”, 8 cloves per head). I’ll add to it the 8 Music heads I just got (6 cloves per head), plus some sprouted supermarket ones I want to try. Some will go to my parents garden too.
