Today I planted my garlic. This year for the first time, I used soft-neck garlic I grew myself. I planted three rows, maybe 30 cloves total. In previous years, I usually planted FEDCO seed garlic. I love planting garlic in early November. To me, it means continuity, the planting of hope for the next season when now everything else in the garden is winding down. In a few weeks, the new garlic shoots will appear before winter comes and they will be the first plants to come up in the spring.
I also harvested Swiss Chard and flowers and took out a rogue rose bush that occupied valuable gardening space.
Plot in early November: carrots, radishes, parsley, Swiss Chard, leeks, kale, chicory and flowers.
