Necessary to protect garlic from critters over the winter?
Yesterday I planted a 4'X6' bed with garlic cloves. The ground is freshly dug with compost mixed in. Once I finished, I began to worry about the voles in my yard, as well as the chipmunks and squirrels. Will any of these critters dig up the cloves? Should I cover the bed with screen for the winter?
