Enjoy putting things in the boxes that come up seemingly on their own next year.
This week planted 3 varieties of garlic and a raspberry bush from Gurney's.
Garlic varieties are California White, Music, and Purple Glazer.  
Sweet Repeat is a variety of raspberry bush. Suppose to give berries twice a year.  Fingers crossed. 
Side note, asparagus does very well in SFG.  One 4x4 box is going strong the past 3 or 4 years. 
Left some ground cherries in the soil and those will become the strongest plants next year that survive the winter here in Ohio. 
Most of the 10 boxes are tarped over for the winter, a couple were turned into flowers and herbs for the chickens and still going..
That's all for now.

That would be 4 cloves per square foot.  I find giving garlic generous room to grow to it's maximum size works well for me.  Have grown many huge bulbs.  If you don't have the room or want smaller bulbs then plant more per square. Don't miss out on fresh home grown garlic!  Garlic takes up to 9 months.  It's a long time to take up space but I think you'll find it is so worth it.

I have done 5/SF for garlic, and 9/SF as well for smaller bulbs.

LM, how did you space your asparagus?  I’m putting in an asparagus bed this year, shallow SFG.

Hi Scorpio R. 

I spaced four asparagus per square.  Part of the roots are shallow, part of it (storage root I want to say) is a couple of feet deep as I recall.
