Our garlic harvest came early this year, but was a really nice one. I grow mostly soft neck varieties for braiding and ease of storage, but some hard neck for spicy summer eating as well.
It turns out that a garlic harvest is an ideal activity for a preschooler as it involves brute force, minimal delicacy, and dirt.
Since I now have an open bed I'm thinking about growing a crop of back eyed peas as cover. I'd be curious to hear what others rotate in their garlic beds.
