We planted 14 varieties of 40,000 garlic in Tweed plot. It was a challenge to get the plot ploughed and tilled for an acre. But again, we have some wonderful neighbours and they helped us find a farmer with a tractor to plough and till for us.
We did three visits to hand plant them all. More detailed pictures are coming later.

It took 3 hours for four of us to till the bed, plant, compost and mulch.
We planted 1500 gloves of Russian, Tibetan, Ukranian, Yukoslavian, Italian, Persian and Sicilian.
We picked October 24 because it was after the full moon day.
The weather outside was around 13 C.

It took us two people over 6 hours to clear the grass and till the soil.
This bed is 20X35 feet. We will be planting 7 varieties of Garlic on this plot for seed development.
We will apply for the organic certification next year.
