Small Farmers

You are not an urban homesteader (or suburban) Your farm is more than an acre and may be hundreds of acres. You grow sustainably. You might have livestock out on grass. You sell what you sow direct to your customers via CSA, farmers markets, etc..See More

Lucy Goodman replied to Carrie Seal-Stahl's discussion 'When to Plant? Conflicting Advice...' in the group Garlic Divas and Gurus
"plant between halloween and Thanksgiving (or before the ground freezes). Never plant in spring as the garlic must do all of it's root growth before the vernal equinox and of you plant after that, you will get much smaller corms. The best place…"
