Propagation Month, Day 28: Planting Garlic

While I wasn't looking, a bulb of organic garlic decided to sprout on my kitchen counter. I think August is actually the best time to plant garlic around here and I hadn't really planned on planting garlic anyway, but sometimes opportunities just present themselves. I grew some garlic last year, but the bulbs came out very small--perhaps I didn't water or feed them enough. Time to give it another try.

I only planted the cloves that had sprouted (about nine of them) and I planted them at the same depth you would normally plant bulbs--about three times the height of the bulb.
