Oh Shoot!

Yesterday, Dan asked me if I noticed the garlic was up.  I had not, so Anna and I took a little trip out to the muddy garden to inspect the situation more closely.  There they were.  Shoots of garlic about 2-3 inches high, and they did not look good. 

I'm sure the garlic sprouted in the beautiful fifty-degree weather we had, only to be struck down by the snow and bitter cold that followed.  The varieties of garlic I planted last fall are new to me, so I'm not sure if they are hardy in our northern climate.  Time will tell.


  1. Wow, I've never known anyone who grew their own garlic! Let me know if it survives, and if it's better than store-bought.

  2. Didn't know you had a garden, what else do you grow?

  3. This will be our second summer in the new house, and I want to expand the vegetable garden. Last year we had tomatoes, peppers, peas, lettuce, onions, carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, broccoli and various herbs (and failed watermelons). This year I will be adding a strawberry patch and ...?
