tilling and last minute planting

Finally decided to till the garlic beds with a hand (motorized) tiller instead of dealing with begging, borrowing, or stealing a tiller for the tractor. Got two beds tilled and planted one with "Brown Rose" garlic. Early Italian, Okrent, Killarney, and Chesnok Red varieties still to go. It'll be well below freezing by the weekend. Cutting it down to the wire. What's the quote? "Italians come to ruin most generally in three ways: women, gambling, and farming. My family chose the slowest one." Pope John XXIII Well, things have been feeling a lot more like gambling than gardening around here lately. Garlic is a pretty hardy plant though, and getting dragged around by a rototiller in the rain isn't so bad as it sounds.
