Growing garlic in the Saratov region - planting and care
SARATOV GARLIC - CULTIVATION, LANDING AND LEAVING: TO HARVEST
Secrets of watering
Podzimny garlic was planted in the autumn, winter passed, spring is coming. Heat. Garlic begins to break out, and it happens early. If lucky and there was no freezing at the time of the appearance of the leaves, they turn out green, strong. If frost has happened, then the leaves are picked up by the cold, and their tips begin to turn yellow.
With enough moisture in the ground, garlic grows well and grows well. With a lack of moisture, when the snow melted early and the earth has eroded (and we have constant wind blowing), the moisture goes deep, which means that it is necessary to water the garlic, give it a boost to growth. If the leaves are frozen, I advise you to add nitrogen fertilizer -1 Art. l On 10 l of water, and the garlic will immediately get prettier!
About watering in general: in all regions, the climate, terrain and land are different. If you don’t need to water in the northern regions, then here, in the Saratov Trans-Volga region, it is simply necessary. We have a risky farming zone, without our help the local gardens and orchards are bad. Therefore, garlic must be watered regularly, as necessary, and watered deeply, since its heads are deep in the ground. Surface irrigation will not give a good result - they are like the rain that sprayed and flew away.
After watering, be sure to loosen the aisles: the ground in the garlic garden should breathe. Well, if there is something to mulch. Watch for weeds and remove them in time. And now the time has come when the garlic begins to give arrows. Do not miss this moment! Remove them while they are young and break off well, leaving a lump. Arrows by this time begin to bend in an arc. The removal of the arrows is necessary so that all the power goes into the head. But I leave one arrow in each row: they will tell you when the garlic is ready for harvest. The control arrows straighten over time, the inflorescences burst, and bulbs become visible, which can be used to update the variety. The lower leaves turn yellow - that's all, the garlic is ready.

Garlic Storage Secrets
Harvest should be in dry weather. I dig garlic with pitchforks with a wide step. I stick vertically and deeply at a distance of about 8 cm from the stem and break in: so the heads are less injured. I put the garlic on the bed of the hour on the 2, then put it on the landing site. When the stems dry up, I shorten them to 20 cm, continuing to dry further. For the night I cover with covering material.
As soon as the roots and stems dry out well, I cut the roots, and leave the stems as long as 3-4, see
Until September, I keep garlic in the country in a dry ventilated room in a plastic vegetable box. When sorting garlic for storage I choose the best heads for planting. The box with the planting material is stored in the garage. By the time of planting, he sometimes appears roots (rudiments).
I keep garlic in a cardboard box in the corner of the bedroom, near the balcony door, for eating at home. If the apartment has a normal temperature, the garlic is perfectly preserved until the summer. And if it is hot (as it was this winter), it already dries up by January.
I made sure that garlic is best stored at a temperature of 15-20 ° (can be slightly lower) in a dry room.
Who knows how to store garlic in a city apartment, write to the magazine, share your experience.
I got garlic from my parents. What sort, I do not know. In the heads of 4-6 teeth, but there are also multi-teeth. Our summer residents like to weigh everything, so this time I also weighed my garlic: in September, they pulled the heads to 70-100 g, but by this time it was losing weight.
But in general, my garlic makes me happy. I tried to breed with bulbs of inflorescences - a good crop is obtained only in the third year. In 2010, in November, frosts hit -17-20 °, and there was no snow.
And despite the fact that the bed was covered with rotted manure, the garlic froze. In the spring, a little one got out, and only half of the planted one. Heads turned out small. All left for landing, nothing was left for food. She planted it in the fall and was worried: what will grow out of such rubbish? But in the spring he ascended cheerful and green, and in the summer he pleased with a wonderful crop of large heads! But almost all summer residents were left without a crop that year ...

From young juicy shoots of garlic get a very good spicy snack. Arrows skip through a meat grinder or chop in a blender, add salt and mayonnaise. Spread in glass jars (I take small ones, according to 0,25 g). It turns out delicious spicy seasoning, which is good to add to the dishes (if, of course, in order gastrointestinal tract). Try it!
