How to Plant Garlic October 19, 2011

Being mid-October, there’s not much going on in the garden.

Surprisingly, my tomatoes are lush, green and full of blooms. But if this morning’s frost doesn’t get them, tomorrow’s will.

Typically, the first frost means it’s the end of the growing season, but believe it or not, it’s the ideal time to plant garlic.

Here’s how you do it:

1. Grab the unused store-bought garlic from your pantry.

2. Break it apart.

(Each clove should produce a clump like we started with.)

3. Stick them in the ground, pointy part up, about 2 inches deep, giving them at least five inches of elbow room.

4. Cover the bulbs with dirt and mulch them with leaves, straw or hay.

That’s it!

Come spring, we should all have garlic galore!

Happy planting!
