Planting Next Year's Garlic Crop

Our big autumn planting project continues at my Bedford, New York farm with the next crop of garlic.

Although this can be done in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked, fall planting is recommended for most gardeners. This allows extra time for the garlic bulbs to grow and become more flavorful for the summer harvest. Every year, we plant garlic from Keene Organics, a family owned farm in Wisconsin that sells certified organic and naturally grown gourmet bulbs for both eating and planting. Garlic is great for cooking and very good for your health. It is known to lower blood pressure as well as cholesterol, and carries many antioxidant properties. Knowing that I also grow the garlic myself makes it even more special.
