Garlic looking really good in Wake Forest NC
Last fall was the first time we attempted growing garlic. After reading a LOT on this forum, there was a seller at our local Wake Forest farmer's market that had some of the most pungent and nicest looking garlic I had seen. She said it was music garlic, a hardneck variety, so we bought almost all she had, cooked with it all season and saved quite a bit for growing in the fall.
In November I built another 16x4 raised bed mostly for the garlic and filled it with Nature's Green Re-Leaf engineered compost/topsoil which we had SUCH good luck with in our other raised beds, and set out about 90 cloves.
So far, it looks really good, can't wait til it is harvest time!
