Watching the Garlic Grow
The other day when it was so very dreary, I planted a clove of garlic. I had this burning need to watch something grow, and I wanted it fast. It was about 3:00 in the afternoon when I stuck the clove in water. By evening the roots had visible growth. It was sunny yesterday so that gave my project a boost. Today we are back to rain, but check out my garlic. Why I could have fresh garlic greens in my salad by tomorrow.
I did see a big flock of red wing blackbirds today, and one robin. It was really pretty nice out this morning. Now it is rainy and foggy and may slip into sleet. Beware the ides of March! Actually when it comes to the weather here, beware the beginning of March too!
