It can take years for the garlic to be a useable size and you just keep harvesting and keeping for next years seed, until it is big enough
when I’m super stressed (which is most of the time, it seems), I count, I count everything, how many steps I’m walking, how many things I am picking, how many times I have turned the spade over etc. etc.
Today I planted 457 cloves of garlic………I dressed the soil with ash from the bread oven and some blood, fish and bone, raked it all in and am keeping fingers crossed that that will be enough to get them going…….
Last year I grew 3lbs of garlic, I’m not sure if I can plant it all, so if anyone wants any tiny, organic garlic bulbs for planting, let me know they are free to a good home
