How to Plant Garlic - NOW!

Just before you finish up with the garden, you can still plant garlic - as long as the ground is workable.

Start with a nice, fat, organic bulb.

Break into cloves.

Prepare soil: loose and crumbly in a bed.

Drop cloves about 6" deep into holes. Tip points up - just like flower bulbs.

Pat into place, add salt hay if you wish, and wait 'til springtime. Garlic will be ready for harvest in late June.
