I posted some pics of my day planting garlic over on another forum but thought someone here might appreciate it also.

Very Nice, Mark.

For the scale that you are doing, it looks just perfect.
What kind(s) are you planting? I might try just a few. I am in Seattle area.

Thanks.
The varieties I planted this year are Northern White (aka german porcelain.....), Shandong (turban), Khabar (marbled purple stripe), Korean Red (asiatic), Lorz Italian (artichoke) and Elephant.

I am a new transplant here, Seattle area. And want to test plant some garlic shortly , this fall. But I think it it too early now. But now that you have done some planting , maybe it is not !

Where about the state of Oregon are you , Mark ? Anywhere around Portland ?

Thanks Mark.
So we are almost in similar climate. Yours is a bit warmer.
