  • I just planted some garlic. How long does it take to mature?

  • You have chosen a good time. Depending on the variety, I would guess sometime in July or August. Watch for the neck to start yellowing or falling over. Of course, I grab some before then, but if you are going to store them, you want them mature.

    Don't leave them in the ground too long after they fall over or they will start to divide for the next growing season. Still edible but not the same quality.

    Are they in your special beds or....?

  • Mentioning garlic reminded me to divide mine and get them back in the ground. To do that I need to prepare the beds so I have something to do besides cutting wood.
