Bulb Planting Time

Today was a lovely day for gardening. The Autumnal Equinox was yesterday; it is the perfect time to plant garlic. We did all the bulbs we had on hand: daffodils in the daylily bed and garlic in the herb garden. Garlic also grows really well with roses, by the way.

Garlic is super-easy for the home gardener and organic garlic bulbs can be found at the grocery store. Here are some great directions for planting and harvesting garlic: "Any Home Gardener Can Grow Garlic" by Paul Pospisil.

Or, find a two page easy to print summary of the directions at
