Garlic bed and sun question

Berheenia | Oct 9, 2013 02:59 PM

I bought hardneck garlic to plant in a spot I planned to make into a raised bed. However now that autumn is here the spot I picked no longer gets much sun. When we moved here it was summer and this was a sunny sheltered spot next to the garage and a fence. If I plant now and cover the bed with hay does it matter if there is little to no sun? I know it will be full sun again in May through August. We live in southern New England and should plant the garlic in late October/early November.
