I didn't originally set out to plant garlic in the fall. It was a mistake; this is the original mistake.

The first intentional fall planting of garlic in November didn't look like much—just a plot of ground covered with mulch and lined with rocks.
By the first of April, the new growth really began to take off.
By May 1, the patch was thriving.
By mid June the garlic was ready to harvest.
