Default finally planted

i got my garlic planted yesterday.
spring planting is not my preferred method, but i was forced to when our lovely fall weather last year went south for the winter. heavy snow in october along with plummeting temperature kept the snow on the garden until just a couple weeks ago.
most of the garlic was still in pretty good shape. many cloves were starting to sprout, but thats what they are supposed to do. only variety in tough shape was an italian one from patrick. most cloves were pretty dried up, but some still showed signs of life, so in they went. only need one to grow.
i peeled the wrappers off most cloves to check health status, not something i normally do.

the unknown german hard neck i sent out to some of you was still in really good shape
nine months out of the ground

Let us know how that works out Keith. Spring planting is one of those things, seldom done, but you never know the circumstances that could arise - as they did for you.
