Anyone growing garlic in 5 gallon buckets?
I've never grown garlic before, but I'd like to plant some this fall for next year.
I have raised beds with soil very rich in compost (I get it from the town for free). I tried to overwinter a rutabaga once, and it was just a mushy mess the next spring. So, I am concerned about planting garlic in the beds in my very snowy winter and wet springs.
I thought I might try to plant some in 5 gallon buckets, then leave the buckets in my garage (which stays pretty cold).
I'm looking for any advice from anyone growing garlic in raised beds, especially Northeast gardeners, or from anyone growing garlic in 5 gallon buckets.
