A garlic bed was prepared for planting about the 20 of October to allow the garlic to overwinter. It is a raised bed 8 feet by 8 feet, which will contain over 200 cloves. The area can be a wet, so the raised bed is prudent. Fertilizer was compost, a bit of peat moss all worked into the underlying soil. The bed will settle for about three weeks then the cloves will be planted.
