This shot was taken Oct 22nd, a month after planting. It was a mild, sunny fall so the the first four leaves appeared quickly. These are the early purple stripe Turbans. I am writing this post on January 28th, 2019. At this point we have passed the 125 day mark which means this variety has about 120 days to go before harvest. All our garlic varieties are hard necks and they typically take 225-250 days to grow with some variance due to extreme cold (which slows them down). Our target for harvest remains late May. Pray for a mild February!
