Today I went out to my little box garden and discovered a surprise – a few garlic shoots!
Look how sweet they are. Telling me that spring is coming. Filling my cold toes with hope of warm summer days.
Now, I planted about 12 garlic seeds this fall. Really nice big fat organic garlic too no less. I planted them in nice rows, after googling and reading all there is to know about growing garlic online.
As soon as I walked away from the garden and went inside my dog came and thought – ooh she must have hid treats for me in the ground. So he dug around and messed up all my planting! I was so frustrated at that point (that dog…THAT DOG – arrggg!) I figured that I wouldn’t get any garlic since he probably ate them all. And I wasn’t about to go digging around again to try and find all the seeds.
So when I saw these beauties coming up out of the ground (only about 4-5 of them..) I was just thrilled to pieces.
Now it’s time for me to do some spring yard cleanup and prepare/design my garden plans again this year.
Did you plant garlic this fall? Do you have any little shoots coming up yet?
