Time to prepare garlic beds...

In this area it's about time to plant, so I'll try to get the beds ready this week and plant this weekend. Maybe this year will work out better than my self-inflicted fiasco last year!

Off topic, but it seems that posting is slower than normal in this forum. Maybe planting time will bring more activity.

I planted a 4x8 bed with Inchelium Red last weekend. Last year I planted that variety (first time I ever planted garlic) and had great success with it. I'd love to try some other varieties, but caring for my Mom after surgery put ordering on hold this year. I'm going to see what I can come up with in the next couple of weeks.
