    Wade - i have a garlic question:
    What is the best variety of garlic to plant in the spring(missed planting it again last fall due to waterfowl season)?

    It's supposedly on in southern Illinois, which would make them about 10 days early on average:

    Even if the sighting isn't legit (not saying it is or it isn't), it's about time down there.

    The trend is for the northern Illinois temps to be above average through next week. If the trend continues we could have an early start as well.

    I am planting raised beds. Do you think that planting closer will have a negative effect on yield?
    Take a thermometer. And "don't forget to take a towel".

    6-8-10 if fine. 12" allows an easy working width between plants ..
    6" will effect and have less yeild

    8" it is then. I have a pound each of Killarney Red and Georgia Crystal on the way.

    It's been snowing most of the day in NE IL - but it ain't stickin'. We will have at least a month of seed starting, garlic planting, sausage making, and fish smoking before the mighty morel ravages our agenda for a few weeks.

    Perhaps not. But you could have used it to smash that bastard in the corner.

    All my spots are in state parks and wildlife areas.....I’m beyond disappointed right now. I really can’t believe this is happening. I don’t come within 100 feet of anyone when I’m out there anyway! Ridiculous.
