Plant as soon as possible in early spring once the soil is workable. Separate cloves from garlic bulb and plant pointed end up in a 4" deep hole. Space the cloves 6" apart in row, with 12" between rows. Pinch off any flowers that might develop as although they look nice they consume energy that should be going into the finished bulb size.
AFTERCARE: Store garlic bulbs by roping or hanging in netted bags in a cool, frost free dry spot for use throughout the winter.
Fresh or cooked this is a versatile healthy flavorful vegetable. Good keeper for use throughout the winter. Can also be chopped and frozen for later use.
