This is what I did last Sunday!  Planted 155 cloves for harvesting next summer and my house garlic is considered a vegetable, which is probably why I'm so healthy!  I plant hard-neck Muzik, which is an excellent large clove garlic which stores well!  Enjoy!

Did you plant hardneck garlic?
one of the beautiful things about living 30 minutes from gilroy is that in the spring and fall you can smell the garlic fields :D
This reminds me that I planted some grocery store garlic last year that I had sprouting in the beer crisper and haven't checked up on since. I don't really have a garden, I just plant things in the yard where I think they might do okay.
I hear that hardnecks grow better and bigger in the West with it's shorter growing season.
+Lynn Myre Yes, they do, but you must plant them in the Fall and overwinter them...they are cold-hardy and around August or September of next year they are ready!  Garlic takes a full 6 months in the ground to produce really well. 
Where do you get the planting stocks?
Thank you Katherine for the information. I am bookmarking the site.
