Glimpses of Spring in the Garden

It’s nearly time to roll up some of the netting we used to anchor leaves last fall. The leaves served the newly planted garlic seed well. They protected it from heavy snow all winter long so the moment the ground and air warm enough, the garlic seed can sprout for our 2021 crop of eating and planting garlic.

Some spinach overwintered, what a treat.

The first nibbles of French sorrel peek through the soil. French sorrel is among the earliest and latest crops available to gardeners.

Happy Spring!
