The Garlic Patch In January

We had quite a rain storm roll through Tuesday night and with it came some high wind gusts. My one layer remay tunnel, which sits over the raised garlic bed, was torn loose from the earth staples that secured it to the ground. This morning, with blue skies overhead and sunshine on my back, I set about to re-secure the tunnel over the garlic bed once again. This project did allow me the chance to easily check on the garlic plants and see how their growth was progressing. Both varieties are doing well. All 15 "Chesnook Red', pictured above, and all 17 "Music" pictured below, are up. The "Chesnook Red" are a bit taller but this isn't surprising considering that they sprouted a week before the first "Music" bulb did. All in all, the garlic season is off to a good start!
