Time to Plant Garlic

Hardneck Garlic - Music Garlic

It will soon be mid-October, and the garlic needs to be planted so the roots will get growing while the soil is still warm, and before the weather turns cold. My choice for growing is Music Garlic, this variety does well here in Western Oregon. I get my planting material from Territorial Seed Company, here in Oregon. I have a big chore to do before planting, I need to make sure the gophers cannot eat all of my garlic. To do this, I will remove all the soil from my raised bed, and install heavy welded wire on the bottom of the raised bed and attached to the wood sides. I need to make a trip to the lumber and hardware store and get started, I want to do this in the next few days.
