Hi to all the Texans on the list.
 I have a question, but first a tiny explanation. Here in Seattle I grow a
roja, hard neck garlic. I'm kind of partial to the flavor and prefer them
over the soft neck garlics. My question is does anyone grow this down
there? Oops! A second question: when does one plant garlic in Texas?

 Up here we plant it in late Sept. early Oct. I'm planting a crop this
week, but I've saved some to plant at my mom's place in Hondo. My notion
is that what I plant here will be ready to harvest about the time I'm
moving back to Texas next July. On the other hand and in case I can leave
before then, I thought I'd plant some at mom's so I would at least have
cloves to keep the whole thing going. So any advice would be more than
