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.
