Garlic crop rotating?
I started a bed 4'x6' last full of garlic. I was a little worried, but to my amazement they all came up beautifully. I want to do more next fall, but am very limited with full sun area's (I have ALOT of full size tree's). I got a bunch of free white cedar picket fencing from my step-father, so I want to make more raised beds. The fencing is about 20yrs old, but looks to be in very good shape. I was thinking I could fit 2 bed's total, 12'long x 4' wide. I was thinking 1 bed full of garlic per year would be enough for my family. I did 8" spacing of my garlic planted last fall and I would go 6" spaing from now on.
So because I am limited in space for rotating, 1 year a bed is garlic and the following year put herbs in the bed and switch my garlic to the second bed? Or maybe do garlic 2 year's in a row than switch and grow herbs the same bed?
