A guide on how to grow Garlic .
I plant Garlic twice a year. In Early spring and in late September. There are several types of garlic.
  Softneck garlic  -which is the garlic in which you see at your typical grocery store.

Artichoke garlic  - is  a milder flavor garlic that can be stored up to eight months.

silverskin garlic  -  Is a easy to grow  garlic with a strong taste and stores up to 12 months.

The pictures shown  here planting the garlic are a silver skin  type. They were planted 2 weeks ago .They should be ready by  early september .

 The pictures where the garlic stalks that are about 10 inches high were planted last year in september.They will be ready in late july..

Step 1: Materials

(1) recycled box from the local fruit market

(2) 1 bag peat moss

(3)  4 bags garden soil

(4)  10 clothes of garlic from last years crop

Step 2: Planting the Garlic

First  start by putting a  8 inch layer of garden soil in the bottom of the garlic box  .
Then i put 5 inches of peat moss on top if that . Then finish filling the box with more top soil.
To plant the garlic  stick your finger in the soil up to your second knuckle  on your index finger .
 Drop the garlic in   ( TIP UP)  the hole and cover lightly with soil.

Step 3: Watching Them Grow

After about two weeks you will start to see a green finger  come out of the soil.
