|Garlic Planting. 10.19.14|
I added an inch of well aged home-made compost and raked it in. This compost was in a plastic garbage can for a few years. So it's really well aged.
5 row are the biggest cloves from last year's Inchelium Red. Huge cloves. Well adapted to local conditions - I've been growing this one for about 14 years.
4 rows are either Inchelium Red or German Porcelain. I had a mix up.
2 rows are some new German Red that I bought locally. To try something different. Smaller cloves but my grow bigger in my bed, or not.
These are 8 cloves per 4 feet, and there are 9 rows per 8 feet. I use bamboo sticks between the rows to mark the space.
