According to info I've read, garlic planting in the northeast should be done in Oct.
With our weather patterns in recent years I can't believe days apart would be any issues.
Garlic's root system must be established before the ground freezes. The greens on top will look like they died off, however in spring when it warms up they will come back with a vengeance.
My beds are up off the ground, last winter, they froze solid as a brick. Garlic still came up nicely.

Same with us jimmycee. Will plant this weekend and water until I leave Nov. 1st. Before that I will go to the feed store with plastic garbage bags and get their straw that litters the ground and mulch heavily. By the time I get back in mid Nov. will water again and it should freeze pretty good. Hope they make it.

Planted them today, 64 German X hardy and 14 Music cloves
I have 20 squares and was able to go 4 to a square, never planted this amount, always been much more.
Going to be interesting how it grows, maybe I'll learn how to be a lean planter.

I'm waiting until first week in Nov  down here in zone 8.  I have half a bed of savoy cabbage that may or may not get some size before hard freezes.  Plan to plant the garlic in the other half and around the cabbage plants.  Thinking about adding some bone meal to the planting holes just like I do for flower bulbs.

Since garlic is harvested just about the start of warm weather crops, what do you think would be a good item to plant in that garlic bed ?
I had potato's which did nicely in this small bed this year. Maybe cucumbers since a late start is sometimes recommended to evade those beetles.
I love this idea about SFG. A square can be utilized just about any time. Add some compost and good to go.

I planted garlic and onions in the fall/winter in the summer cucumber and squash beds to prevent dampening off of the cucs and squash seedlings.  A square can be a garden unto itself!

My garlic gets planted on Halloween.  The hard part is trying to decide which box gets them this year.

Got my garlic planted today along with shallots and cilantro seeds. What will happen is the cilantro will come up really early and intermix with the garlic. This early cilantro will be used and possibly ready to seed by the July fourth garlic harvest (typical). Doesn't bother the garlic at all, I have done it this way the last three years and we have cilantro all summer.

Parsley to me normally lasts all season. I like to clean out the garlic bed when the garlic is ready. The cilantro has normally or close to going to seed. When this happens I can clean out the entire area for something else and don't have to work around living plants. Does any of this make sense or is it just me??? Rolling Eyes

On a shopping trip at the big box store the other day I bought a two pound bag of garlic, after peeling and slicing getting it ready for the dehydrator I go outside to set up my solar dehydrator up and I notice the garlic I planted 18 squares is starting to turn yellow. As this will be my first year down here to grow garlic I have a couple of questions #1 does anyone have a easy way to peel garlic? I cut both ends off the segment then bruise it under the flat side of a knife then peel the skin off that works fine when just a few segments but after that my fingers get so sticky I cant turn loose of anything. #2 In the store I see jars of minced garlic does anyone have a recipe for minced garlic They would share?

I just smash it a little bit with a broad side of a  chefs knife. This loosens the paper  so it is easier to peel.

You could try a garlic crusher but I have yet to find one that works like the ones on the cooking channel.  My good one works OK if the garlic is REALLY fresh and firm.

I think the jarred minced garlic is in oil of some kind. You could google for a recipe. There are probably plenty out there.

Back to Point's original question. If memory serves me, homemade garlic preserved in oil needs to be refrigerated. Only commercial canning has the ability to be safe. Anyone else?

My technique is similar to Camp's.

An old friend from India taught me to use the flat side of a Chinese cleaver to loosen garlic peels.
