The garlic beds are performing as expected. Despite my careful inspection at planting time, the Montana Giants, a good sized rocambole, are sporting a few doubles. I dug them up, split them and replanted them. I felt a bit like a Siamese twin surgeon as I split the cloves ... but near the bottom all became clear as each sprout had its own individual root system. I was glad to see the roots had already wrapped themselves around big chunks of nutritional compost. This could be a good year indeed.
