|Garlic for planting. 8.30.15|
Instead of 8 per row, they are 6 per row. Instead of 10 rows, there are 8. I did that to give them more room.
It might be too early. Last year I planted late and they did not get in much growth before the first freeze. I can plant more in a few weeks.
This bed has the following rotation:
|First Garlic Planting. 8.30.15|
2015: now, garlic.
I used the largest garlic heads.
I also cleaned up the 1/2 of an 8x8 bed that had E.W. Onions. That got topped of with some yard soil and planted with buckwheat for green manure.
I started the 4x4 cinderblock bed that I have been gradually building, for replenishing the Chinese Chives. Will progressively replant them into this bed over the next few weeks. The soil is enriched with aged chicken compost, and a sprinkling of Epson salts and lime. Prior testing showed my soil is acidic, and a bit low in calcium and magnesium. I mixed the additives into the soil and watered to get it ready.
