Garlic Harvest

This is what I got from one row of 15 feet.  At two to three inches apart I should have harvested 60 bulbs.  I harvested 75 with only a handful of little ones.  This is my best garlic harvest in the 3 years that I've been growing garlic.  The nice thing is buying it once and then using cloves from what you grow to replant.  This makes it the most affordable plant in my garden.  No need for starting indoors, etc.  And nothing likes to eat it.  Just be careful to not over water because I've heard they can get some kind of rot and split.

Very well done, Laura!
In georgia, we had chinese neighbors and they did plant their garlic around their plot, because it would help keep bugs away, so it makes sense what you are saying.
Congrats!

Wow, nice harvest. I'm going to try growing my own garlic. Everyone said that they're easy to grow. I want to try taking the garlic pesto next year. Can't wait for your post on how you can your greenbeans. I have a glasstop stove, too afraid to use a pressure canner on it, so it's the freezer for me.
