Weeded the garlic!

Mark(Oregon, Zone 8)February 17, 2013

I finally finished weeding the garlic and got a nice top dressing of compost on it. The weather has been decent and i've noticed some growth finally start to kick in. I thought i'd share a photo as it's been quiet on the allium forum lately.

Here are some early red onions (desert sunrise) that have overwintered and should bulb in May.

What did you use to weed it? My garlic should start growing in about another month here in upstate NY so I might have to weed mine in April.

I pull a stirrup hoe down the rows and then spend a lot of time finger picking. I usually have to weed 2-3 times in total.
