I was in a bit of a race this year too...due to the above picture. You are supposed to plant the garlic late in the year, like the end of October. I had planned to spend Sunday planting the garlic and raking up leaves at my mom's house and spreading them over the freshly planted garlic, and my almost closed up garden. Unfortunately, snow was in the forecast. I rushed to plant it Saturday evening. The above picture is what we woke up to on Sunday morning, after a night of no power. I'm glad that I got the garlic in the ground, and I hope that my newspaper will work in place of the leaves!
How about you? Do you plant garlic in the fall? And did it snow where you are? We only got a few inches, and it was all slush. Emma made a great Halloween snowman though :-)
I am linking up the Homestead Revival's Barn Hop again this week
