Growing Garlic 2013 – Harvest July

It is Harvest month here at The Garlic Chop!

Notice how the bottom leaves are dying back.

It really rained hard the other day causing concern for flooding the garlic.

Lots of rain the last few weeks.  Haven’t had a chance to feed.

No calcium, nitrogen or extra nutrients added last few weeks,

just the organics in the soil with the cow manure.

July 8, 2013 – The Garlic Peel & The Garlic Chop on standby ready to peel and chop this years garlic. Variety in the picture is Music. Notice the leaves dying back. The stalks are also starting to feel a little lose…… I think we are close!!

Too much rain at this point and the garlic bulbs will rot (which grow under the ground).

As long as your soil is fluffy and can drain well you shouldn’t have a problem.

We received about 50mm yesterday and throughout the week…

But enough water is enough!  And the forecast is calling for even more rain…. eeek!!
