[Market-farming] Garlic Spacing

Hi Scott,

I happen to think that's plenty of space for garlic.  We grow garlic quite 
densely (more so every year, it seems) and haven't noticed any change in 
head size, health, etc. as a result...just more garlic in less space.  So, 
as long as that spacing leaves you ample room to weed (however you do that), 
I say go for it!

Hope this helps,
