Fall Planting 2008
We planted our garlic in an oats cover crop about 3" deep & 4" apart.
Our 1st two garlic rows of garlic variety Music are now planted and marked.
Here are two wonderful helpers on my home made planting machine.
Our garlic field is nessled all snug under 8-12" of snow. The snow is actually an insulator for the garlic and prevents the freeze/thaw which can damage the garlic. As the garlic is hibernating, it is developing it's gourmet flavor.
By January all snow fields look the same, but to us this field is growing wonderful garlic.
And more snow...where's spring?
We sustainably manage our soil to ensure that we have the proper balance of nutrients and minerals to produce the healthiest vegetables, garlic, berries, and herbs.
