    When is a good day to plant my garlic?
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    I'm doing mine on the 10th of October after checking the weather for my area. The 10th thru the 12th is a perfect time. I've been planting garlic on or around Columbus day for many years and it always works out well for me.

    It's raining here right now, got several inches of rain last night, so it'll have to wait until the 10th now.

    Well it's going to get cold here in central Iowa and real quick. I have no clue as to when to plant my garlic now, every day that it's been a good day to plant it's been pouring down rain here. Or is that the actual trick, plant in the pouring rain???
