Planting

Well wish me luck. I planted some garlic today.  I live in the south in the USA so it should grow this winter.  I have been reading about winter gardening.  I got my fingers crossed.  Any pointers would be welcome.

Yay! We have a 1 acre yard and will be tearing up half of the front yard to make 2 large veggie gardens. One is for dh and I and the other is for the inlaws and my parents. Fresh food is so expensive we need to do this.

Your right fresh food is so expensive.  I love food that I have grown myself even more for some reason.  It just always taste better.

Where do you live? I'm in Texas and I didn't know you could do garlic in winter. We have never attempted any winter plants.

I'm in Tennessee.  It is my first go around with it but from what I have read it should do okay.  I bet you would do good with winter plants in Texas.

 I will have to look into it for next year.

We planted about 100 cloves in November.  We use a lot and we like to share some. :)
We snip the scapes on ours.  We either use them in food or throw them in for compost.  You don't have to do it though just might get smaller bulbs.

Do you know how long before I can harvest them.

When the bottom leaves turn brown and top ones are still green.  Don't wait until the whole thing is brown.
We usually dig ours up in July.  We are in PA though.

Thank you.  I will watch for that.
