I planted my first garlic last fall. A friend of mine had some bulbs left over from her harvest and gave them to me to plant, telling me that they are the easiest and most satisfying thing to grow. I was skeptical (after all, radishes are pretty darn easy and I have a thing for the beans, you know) but I thought why not, and in the fall, after cleaning out my beds, I planted two rows of garlic (all the cloves from two bulbs).
It’s looking promising! These were the plants in March, and below in early April.
It remains to be seen whether or not there are nice garlic bulbs at the end of them — we should find out in June!
