We planted garlic two fall seasons ago and just like they were supposed to, they came up the following spring. It was great. We had so much garlic that we still have not finished it all. This spring Farmer No. 1 planted some remaining cloves in the ground to see what will happen. Nick the Farmer looked on with disdain explaining that it's not going to work and that garlic does need to be planted in the fall. Determined, Farmer No. 1 continued on.
