November Gardening

fresh garlic bulbs with roots and stems

The last of the 2021 gardening tasks is complete!  Although, planting for next season’s garlic harvest might be more correctly classified as getting a jump on 2022.  With a sunny day, autumn temps in the comfortable 30s, and the ground cool but not frozen, it is the perfect time for hard-neck, porcelain varieties, such as Music, to go into the ground.

Sporting a large blub with 4-8 individual cloves, Music is easily identifiable by its pinkish to purple hued thin papery skin.  It is dubbed hard-neck because of its stiff center core.  Porcelain garlic prefers cooler weather, perfect for Minnesota. 

Happy gardening!

  1. I just got am email with a free shipping on bulbs and I really need to get going on that. Flower bulbs for me. Although I would love to add garlic to my garden – I bet voles don’t like garlic.
