Fall is definitely here. We haven’t had a frost yet, but we will shortly. Sometimes it’s a good idea to wait for that first light frost and then get the garlic in, but I should be fine getting it in the ground now. The point is to let the roots get established before things get too cold. Of course, if you put it in to early, you’ll get some growth and that is to be avoided.
I’ve got three types.
- German Hardy. Stiffneck. Planted this near the back of the row.
- Music. Stiffneck. Should grow great.
- Susanville. Softneck.
I did a few quick videos to show the bed prep and planting. I could edit them together I suppose, but I’m a little lazy.
