Hello Spring

beds of spring garlic

Well here we go, my first blog!  My original plan was to start blogging during the winter months, when there was not a lot going on and as you can see, that did not happen.  So what better time than spring, when things are new and fresh.

Speaking of new and fresh, the garlic is up.  We ended up planting 7 beds of garlic, each bed being 300 feet long, for a total of 200+ pounds of hardneck garlic.  It has been exciting to see the garlic come up.  Interestingly, the black mulch beds are proving to be warmer, as they are further ahead of the white mulch.  We still have a long way to go, so my fingers are crossed that we have a strong crop.
