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.

October 27th 2020, this is the latest I have ever planted garlic, Music, Purple Glazer, and California White, these are cloves from last years planting. This year I followed Filaree's book regarding best size cloves to plant.  It says 5-to 9 gram cloves will grow the most consistent large bulbs.  So I'm giving it a try after weighing cloves this afternoon and finished planting a bit ago. Look forward to next July to see what happens.

Garlic in Central Ohio Empty Planting and Growing Garlic

Post  Dunkinjean on 10/27/2020, 10:44 pm

Hi Everyone,

I have been planting and growing garlic for several years. 
The past 3 yrs my softneck garlic didn't do well which I believe was due to the rains in the spring.
My hardneck did do very well, therefore this year I am growing 2 types of garlic.

Happy garlic planting everyone!

DJ, I'm surprised you have been able to grow soft necks in NJ. Here in central CA, soft necks are the only type I can grow. Usually planting around Oct, I still haven't planted any cloves. Shocked

Me neither—but this weekend I have 2 varieties of hardneck going in—Music and German Hardneck!  

Last year I grew Georgian Fire and German hardneck—both delivered 

I love the scapes off the Hardneck.  Those are the only ones that will survive our winters. 

Hope I get to get them in!!!!!!!
