52 degrees and sunny. Bugs are emerging.
This weekend, we did our annual fall planting of garlic. We grow a hard neck variety that does very well in our climate zone and stays fresh in storage for well over a year.
Garlic gets planted in the fall, sits tight over the winter, and is one of the first plants in the garden to say hello to spring.
We planted 13 full heads of garlic, about 120 cloves, which will produce more than we can consume for the year as each clove produces a new head when harvested next summer.
We have 5 huge cabbage ready to harvest. Excited to make sauerkraut in the next few days.
