Here is an excerpt from a post last season.
"This year I planted Morado Gigante, Tuscan, Bogatyr, Asian Tempest, Metechi, Xian*, Purple Glazer, Susanville*, Early Red*, Polish White, Silver Rose*, Silver White and CA early. Next year I'm adding Corsican Red and Simonetti to the crop."
My beds are about 8 inches deep, for my first crop the beds were only about 5 inches deep. The garlic did better in those shallow beds over concrete than they did in the enriched area directly in the ground.
I don't give my garlic much attention and don't mulch. Before planting cloves, the soil is enriched with organic fertilizer mix consisting of cotton seed meal, bone meal, blood meal, kelp meal, and lime. Nothing else is added until harvest around mid June when about half of the top growth has turned brown.
This is my first bulb from last year.
This is the full harvest of one of my favorites, 'Xian' which has very large cloves.
This is about 1/5 of the harvest after drying and cleaning.
Eclectic gardening style, drawing from 45 years of interest and experience. Mostly plant in raised beds and containers primarily using intensive gardening techniques.
