Did you get your garlic and Shallots? It's time to get them in the ground. With this warm and cold thing going on in the Northwest you might be wondering what to do......PLANT.....yes plant them so they get a nice foot hold on the ground before any bad weather. Then after they are up put a dressing around them of straw, leaves or what ever you have that will give them a bit of protection. Don't cover up the garlic just dress around it closely. It we get BIG snow like a couple of years ago I will add 6 or more inches around them again. Roses like this kind of protection also.
If you need to know how to plant garlic see the video on the side bar.
Happy cool weather gardening, Sat looks to be beautiful!
