Rainy days and Sundays always get me down when I can not garden!

In anticipation....of Garlic!

Spring Garlic Care
If you have not already done so, pull back the mulch around your garlic, to expose the new shoots.  Fertilize with a fish emulsion.  Spring is the time to water your garlic.  You will want to keep the moisture in the soil fairly consistent, watering when the top 2 inches is dry (about every 3-5 days).  Watering encourages full size bulb formation, but over watering may hinder curing, reduce the shelf life and encourage mold.  Garlic does not compete well with weeds.
