Garlic sprouting up
This is my first attempt at growing garlic. The end of the season I planted the individual cloves after working the soil as directed by some of the sites I read.
the problem I am having is that now my garlic is sprouting. We've had some unseasonable warm weather here lately along with a decent amount of rain. We hit a record high of 68 degrees this month. The current temperature is now 44. It is expected to keep the warmer temperature for at least the next 10 days but some nights it is expected to drop below freezing.
I have shoots coming up, single stalks on more than half of what I planted. Some stalks are up to 4 inches while others are just starting to sprout. I'm looking for some ideas on how to protect the crop. I was thinking of just putting some clear plastic over the area on stakes to create a small greenhouse tent over the growth. Ideas...suggestions?
