Fall garlic plantingMid-October is the time to plant garlic here in the mid-Atlantic. I purchased a half pound of mixed soft-neck garlic. Garlic from a seed supply store comes in large bulbs. You break apart the bulb into smaller cloves, and plant the cloves about 2 inches deep with the pointy end up, then cover with soft soil. In the picture I haven’t covered the cloves yet. This batch will grow all winter and spring, and be ready for harvesting sometime around early August next year.

Garlic is easy to grow  – try it!
