Weekly Garden Tip
Growing Garlic: Hardneck varieties are only grown in colder climates. They need cold to properly form bulbs. Once you plant them in fall, you want them to be at least 4” before the first frost. You won’t water them all winter! 😲
When the hard frosts of winter are over, you’ll start watering your garlic again. Some people mulch their garlic beds, and some don’t. It depends on how cold your winters are. If you live in a warmer climate, you’ll grow softneck garlic instead.

If you are not finding the peace that you hoped for in your garden, it may be time to step back and take a fresh look at it. When you feel good about what you are doing, the habit is more likely to stick with you. This week’s blog article offers some insight into how to make your garden part of your normal lifestyle that you enjoy and not feel like a dreaded “I have to do this” chore.
Fall time brings the changing of leaves, which also means raking leaves and using them to enhance soil and garden beds.
To utilize leaves in the garden, GYOV CEO and Lifestyle Gardener Denise Beins does a thin layer of leaves in some of the beds to help enhance the soil over the winter, but where she wants weed suppression, she does a thicker layer of 2 – 3 inches.
She also uses leaves by adding them as a “brown” layer to compost bins as well as using them to mulch around plants or on top of her recently-planted garlic to help protect them from cold temperatures.
