I have planted garlic for many years now... planting in the spring.
Failures each time.
This time I planted in the fall and look how tall and happy it is! I am looking forward to a big harvest this summer! If I can give a tip... PLANT GARLIC IN THE FALL!!
I tried a little something different this year. I planted our lettuce in a container garden. I took a galvanized washtub and filled it with some soil. The lettuce is up and filling out nicely. I adore butter crunch lettuce. It's one of my favorites, so this spring mix variety is a fun lettuce to grow.
I love all the colors and varieties of the mix. Happy salad plates coming up soon!
A few of our blessings that are growing here on the homestead. I hope things are coming up 'green' in your neck of the woods. To my friends with snow on the ground... I am sure it won't be long for your green pastures. That snow is going to help make a nice soil for you to work in, I have no doubt!
