Of Spring, that is! Yes, I know it is still dreary and dismal January. But I was able to confirm that my garlic has indeed sprouted.
I planted it last October or November (I don’t really remember exactly) and most of the little bulbs now have beautiful green shoots. Even the one I planted upside down managed to find it’s way to the sun (I righted it today so it has a fighting chance). Combine that with the beautiful blue sky that is out today, and things are looking up.
(Watch, there will be a huge storm this week just to remind me that it’s still winter…)
