If you live in USDA Zone 5, the perfect time to prepare a bed to plant garlic is from the middle to late October.

Garlic likes rich, loose soil which is difficult to find here in Central New York State. However, it isn't a problem because of the method I use to garden.

Instead of tilling the soil, I make garden beds using compost right on top of the native soil.

You can see these beds, and how I prepare the bed to plant garlic in the video below.
