This year, I decided to plant enough to perhaps sell a few and give away some... so far, 316 cloves are in the ground. I waited until the last minute to order garlic as I wasn't sure I would have time to plant out so many, due to school and other obligations; however, the urge to plant garlic was irresistible, and I succumbed at the last moment. Alas, this meant that my favorite garlic supplier, The Garlic Store (http://www.thegarlicstore.com/) , was out of all of the varieties that I wished for. So instead, I ordered from Two Sisters Garlic (http://www.2sistersgarlic.com/). I am somewhat disappointed that they also ended up not having Siberian and ended up making a substitution; however, I understand I ordered late. I also understand that the biggest and best bulbs had already been sold. Still, the varieties I have should make plenty of wonderfully stinky garlic.
The varieties I am planting this year include Inchilium Red (soft neck), Fireball, Music, and German Red. Planted so far - 316 cloves. 281 main crop and 35 small cloves to let flower or to eat the scapes from.
- 29 Inchilium Red
- 126 Fireball
- 99 Music
- 27 German Red
- 35 very small cloves Fireball
Main Bed South 43 Music, 70 Fireball
Raised Bed No. 2 10 Inchilium Red along the south board
West Sunflower Bed 14 Fireball, 19 Inchilium Red, 35 small Fireball for scapes or flowers
Still left to plant - about 100 cloves of planting size and 100 small cloves for chive, scape or flower use. And somewhere along the way, in a totally unrelated drive to plant flowering spring bulbs, I also now have 45 daffodil bulbs to plant out!
