Garlic planting

According to the wise folks at The Farmer's Almanac, yesterday was the last day for planting garlic. It has to do with moon cycles. So despite it being a designated "Rest Day," I toddled out to the garden in my pyjamas (at 2 in the afternoon) to plant the garlic. We used 6 beautiful heads of this year's garlic which, barring any winter snacking from resident wild creatures, should yield 36 heads of garlic next summer. Our first experience with growing new plants from our own produce!
