October, I love October. No other month compares. Our days get shorter, the air is crisp, leaves change into vibrant colors and there is the smell of wood smoke in the air. October means pulling out our sweatshirts, eating caramel apples, raking leaves, Halloween and garlic.
Yes folks, October is for garlic.
Garlic, especially fresh garlic, is absolutely delicious and it is crazy easy to plant. There is really nothing to it. I try to get mine in around Halloween, not to ward off vampires, but because that’s just the best time in our region to do it. I used the following video off YouTube to plant my garlic patch. I hope you find it as useful as I did.
