Plant your Garlic

Plant your garlic now for summer 2014

Always use the largest bulbs, breaking them into cloves. 
Plant them 4 to 5 inches apart and 2 to 4 inches deep. Keep the soil moist.
Rooting will begins in a couple of weeks.

 Harvest in July or August, hang to dry in a warm spot for a couple of weeks.

In June the tops will form tiny flowers, they should be removed. They are called scrapes and can be used in many dishes.

 Russian garlic is my favorite
