Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Planting Fall Garlic and Shallots

Earlier this summer I posted about all the garlic and onions that we harvested.  Fast-forward to the end of October and we are planting garlic for next summer!  This will be our second year growing garlic beginning with the bulbils instead of the cloves. In the above picture are second year rounds. 

For the bulbils, we just scatter them in the rows and will thin them next spring.

The garlic growing area includes two beds with eighteen rows about three feet long.

The Zebrune Shallots that were sprouting in the basement were also planted this fall.
