Growing Garlic – Here we go again!

Growing Garlic – Here we go again! I had such success my first time growing garlic, I was encouraged to do it again. See my Growing Garlic episode from 2014 for planting directions! In early November, I planted bulbs of Inchellium Red and California Early soft neck garlic. Of course, I didn’t mark which was which, but I should be able to tell when I harvest it. 🙂 Right now, I just have this one planter of garlic coming up.

This past June my garlic harvest didn’t quite measure up to my June 2014 success, too many little scrawny ones, but I’m sure that’s a matter of watering. I’ll get it right this time!

We’ve been caught up in overdue home repairs for over a month and I’m very behind on planting. I hope to get these bulbs planted soon! Fortunately, I’m in Southern California and can still plant garlic for summer harvest.
