Each stake represents a different variety. I mix up the stakes (wood, metal and pvc pipe) so that it’s easier to tell where the different varieties are over a messy winter.
The 14 varieties of 2014 garlic are:
German Extra Hardy
Kettle River Giant (Utah)
USDA varieties from:
Czech Republic (a softneck and a hardneck)
Uzbekistan (a brown cloved skinned variety and a white clove skinned variety)
