I placed my Garlic order on the 19th. One pound of a hardneck variety called "German Red". My order arrived on the 26th. I planted on the 27th. Here is the sites description for this garlic -
"This lovely hardneck garlic has a bold, full-bodied true "garlic" flavor. Consistent producer of large bulbs with with fat cloves and red streaked inner wrappers.
Fewer, but larger cloves per bulb with a complex flavor. These generally do better in areas with colder winters."
(7) Beautiful BIG bulbs arrived -
Separated into (49) individual cloves -
Three row of (16) cloves each -
Cover and water -
Also, emptied a bag of grass clippings atop each row to help retain the moisture. Once they poke through I'll add more clippings for added insulation through the winter.
Can taste them already!!
