Garlic is one of my favorite crops for a multitude of reasons. It is the first crop to poke its stem through the ground in the spring, it is the last one to go in the ground before the winter rest, and it is low-maintenance the rest of the time. Not to mention that it is also versatile and delicious!
If there is any doubt about climate change then garlic planting is here to refute those doubts. Traditionally, garlic has been planted in October but we have been able to plant our garlic for the last two seasons in November. We have even waited to this week (the week of November 15th) to mulch the last of it. Talk about late!
Here are photos of our latest garlic planting session. Thanks to our good friend, Jason Gamache, for helping us out!
