2014 Garlic Planted!

The garlic is planted!  I’m now about 1/3 of the way done with mulching, but even in cool, fall weather, it’s hot work, so I came inside for some iced tea.
Here is how the garlic beds looked planted:

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
German Red
Georgia Fire
Metechi
Music
Kettle River Giant (Utah)
Italian Arctic
USDA varieties from:
Belarus
Czech Republic (a softneck and a hardneck)
Korea
Uzbekistan (a brown cloved skinned variety and a white clove skinned variety)
Tajikistan
