Hey all,

So this is my first go around and I chose garlic as I have many deer here, and it will allow me to spread the sales over a longer period after harvest.

If I get the 31 acres this 1-10th acre will plant out an acre there, as seed, if not they will be sold!

100lbs planted out the 1-10th with the poor cloves not used, and we planted 10,000 plants by math, might be off by one or two!! Oh, it's Bogatyr garlic....nice and spicy!

We did not do any paper under the compost (no till) but we did put down 32 tones of compost from a distributor, and did it after the grass had gone dormant, in hopes that it didn't get sun or air all winter and dies without the use of paper or cardboard......the worms are all in it now so we will see! I did do a small 12" border of plastic to keep the grass from migrating in from the sides as easy.
