Bring on the vampires

Finally got the last of the garlic planted. Started the other day with new varieties I picked up at Charlie's Gourmet Garlic Farm with Mary this summer, and just wrapped up with garlic I harvested from my own garden this summer.

New varieties include Italian purple, Bogatyr, Chesnock, Amish rocambole, French red, kettle river and Paskem.
Old varieties are Nordic hammer, Spanish roja, Susanville and music.
Biggest, let's say massive, cloves were with the Nordic hammer and Music varieties. I'll have to see if any of the new varieties get really big here in the home garden.
