winter garlic shoots

plot

In my community garden plot, I was pleased to spot some garlic shoots today. These are in an area where I transplanted one year old top sets last fall. They’re still tiny, but are up and green. The area I planted with larger bulbs is still snow covered. That’s all the plant life I could see in the plot.

  • Actually it looked about this size when I transplanted it in October.

  • My garlic is up too, some didn’t sprout though. Maybe I can pot some up now and fill in the spots when the ground thaws?

    It is nice to see the snow melting. Almost all our snow is gone, I should really get a photo up of it before it comes back.

  • Kathy,

    I can’t see the garlic, guess my eyes are going bad. Glad you are getting some spring there!

    We had 26 degrees last night and expect 25 and 26 three nights more this week. So far our sprouting peas, arugula, kale and meslin are not damaged, Meg covered them pretty heavy with straw.

  • I’m so glad I found your blog on a google search. We just moved to the area and I was looking for some info on planting times for zone 6. If you don’t mind, I’m going to add a link to your blog on my family blog. Thanks!

  • Thanks for the link. Glad the seeds arrived. And I added mouse overs so you can find the mini garlic shoots.

    I enjoyed visiting my plot yesterday and really look forward to a time when I have reason to visit it every day. Today was just an indoor work day.

    Looks like I’ll be helping with the Belmont Community Garden organization this coming season. I’ll attend a meeting next week. Though I don’t really have time for another project, I really enjoy the community plots and will do what I can to help out.

  • HI Matron,

    Since you mentioned ‘The Great Escape’ in my post about potato vodka, we rented it. My son and I have had such fun watching and rewatching this old movie. Love Steve McQueen and that potato scene! Thanks!

    And ditto your comments about spring.
