I just got in from planting 68 cloves of garlic, 6 different varieties. I still have 8 more heads to plant, 4 different varieties but will need to get another bed prepared before I can plant them.

On the way back to the house, I picked up 12 or 13 slugs. It was dusk and hard to see -- I'm sure there are hundreds more out there!

Working out in the rain all afternoon - I'm soaking! But so happy one bed or garlic is planted. This is the earliest I've ever gotten them in. I have great hopes for big Big BIG garlic next summer!

What varieties did you plant? My neighbor grew Music and another one, got nice big heads and is selling it every week to the co-op. He planted it last fall in raised bed rows.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

I don't have music. Yet. Rolling my eyes.

I have simonetti artichoke, silver white silverskin, red janice turban artichoke, tzan turban artichoke, amish rocambole, yusoslavian rocambole, brown tempest marbled purple stripe, german extra hardy porcelain, leningrad porcelain, and purple glazer.

I tried to get a little something for all my needs - roasting, using raw in salsa, general everyday cooking garlic, some that would store a long time, etc. Of course now I don't know which is which. Blinking Well, I do know that the silverskin is the long keeper. And I do have descriptions for them so I should be able to figure it out. Will save that for a winter's day.

Yes, I hope I don't lost track of that! I've labeled carefully and also written down on the computer the order I planted them in and how many of each variety.
