I have been struggling to figure out when to get my garlic and onions in the ground. I thought I had it right this year and got only very small bulbs. I definitely over planted and probably planted too shallow as well.
We usually get three crops most years, so I was considering "fall" after the third crop, which means that tried planting it after the squash died, right around the first frost in December or January. I have trouble being disciplined enough to call fall, fall, when I am still shooting 90 degree weddings in October!
Should I put it in in September, no matter what? I also have a small pile of reserved garlic and onions that didn't really grow last year. I am not sure sure if I should use them or consider just starting with a variety I ordered.
