I finally got around to mulching in my garlic today. I hope it isn't too late as some bulbs were starting to pop out of the ground I have a pretty good side business selling it to local restaurants so I'm going to be seriously annoyed next summer if my procrastination sets back the harvest. I usually plant about 10 pounds and harvest about a hundred.
MMMMM....Garlic Taking any orders from fellow forum members?
Seriously, try planting a few hills of corn if you have some room. The ears need to be pollinated and the hill method increases the pollination %. Corn is wind pollinated. When the tassels come out, just jiggle the plants in each hill. It works better than a few rows, you need many rows to get good wind pollination.
