Harvested the garlic the other day. Check it out!
I am so proud of it. I did the bed like I did all the others this year (well, Michael did for me) - no-till, with just molasses, earthworm castings, and compost. I planted about a hundred and fifty Inchellium Red (above on the left, and first below) and about a hundred Conventional (above on right, and second below) cloves in there, with some shallots in between.
I mulched it well right after planting, then fertilized with 8-2-4 and Flower Power (4-6-4) both at regular strength.

A couple months later, I fertilized again.
And look what I got!
I think next year I'm going to fertilize even more. I got great garlic, but some of it was still small. And I definitely need to fertilize the onions more. I didn't push them enough I don't think. But I still got a lot. Ain't they pretty? I just want them to be whoppers like the garlic.
