Planting Garlic At The Farm

One of the last things to be planted before winter at the farm is the crop of hardneck garlic.  Last July, I posted a blog about harvesting the garlic crop and I thought it would be fun to show you how and when garlic gets planted.  Although garlic can be planted in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked, fall planting is recommended for most gardeners.  This allows extra time for the bulbs to become larger and more flavorful for the summer harvest.  The garlic was planted in November, before the ground became frozen.
