Sang to the tune of “Closing Time” by Semisonic

 

Garlic time
Open up the ground and break up all the clumpy dirt.

Garlic time
Turn all of the garlic into separate cloves for sowing

One last call for October so finish your planting dear

You do have to plant it but you must not fear.

I know what I want to plant this fall.
I know what I want to plant this fall.

Time for you to plant cloves with the points up and butts down.

Garlic Time
This time will be open for your hardneck and softneck bulbs.
So gather up your leaves, and pile them up the rows
I hope you have mulched a bunch.

Garlic Time
Every garlic season comes from some other garlic season’s end.

Yeah, I know what I want to plant this fall.
