Garlic day

The potatoes came out yesterday ( 10/19) , and that turns the bed over. A little fresh compost and then the garlic and shallots went in. This year we planted the best of our saved shallots (about 24 bulbs). I planted an early hard necked garlic (Music) and a midseason  softneck (Susanville) both from Territorial. They were unbelievably nice bulbs. Music has four giant cloves per head and Susanville had 4-6 large cloves and 6-8 more smaller ones per head. The garlic and shallots consume about 4′ X 12′ of garden bed space and give us enough output for a year of cooking. We store both in a produce bin in the refrigerator where it is dark and cool but not cold.
