Delivery from the Maine Potato Lady

I received my order from the Maine Potato Lady last week.  This year in addition to some soft neck garlic I picked up at Bedford Fields Garden Center a few weeks ago we are going to try some heartier varieties of hard neck garlic.  After surfing the Potato Lady’s website I decided on two varieties of garlic and some shallots.    As you can see in the photo I got a bag of German Red and Russian Red garlic as well as some French Gray Shallots.

Upland bird hunting season and the shortening days have really put a hamper on outside activities, during the week.  With any luck the weather will hold this weekend, and I can get a chance to plant the first halfof the garlic and shallots, followed by the last of the following weekend.  I am not sure if staggering the plantings will make a difference, but everyone seems to suggest sequential plantings on your spring crops so maybe it will work for fall plantings as well.

This will be my second attempt at planting garlic, the first for shallots, and all will be planted in the raised beds that we have in the yard.
