We got our garlic crop planted before the first snow of the season! In northern climates, garlic is grown as a winter annual, planted in the late fall so it can set roots before the ground freezes and it goes dormant. This way it rests for the winter, begins growing in the spring, and is harvested in late July or early August. We are trying out 5 different varieties; music, deerfield, korean purple, georgian fire, and russian red.
