Planting Garlic

Red Russian hard neck garlic (left) and Transylvania soft neck (right)

I planted my garlic today. I planted less than in previous years as one kid is out of the house, and the other one is with me only half of the year. This means I cook differently and don’t have use for 60 heads of garlic over the year anymore. Which is why of this year’s soft neck harvest, I made a small braid to give to a neighbor. Today I planted 16 hard necks (Red Russian) and 20 soft necks (Transylvania). I picked the fattest cloves of the three fattest bulbs I had harvested back in July 🙂
