It Begins

In November 2022, we planted garlic on a day like this one. Partway through the season, there was a harvest, not of garlic but of the scape each plant was sending up. And here’s how garlic harvest day goes.

Today falls between planting day and scape-harvest day. More importantly, the garden is returning to life above what had been frozen ground, and we’re about to schedule the first garden work party of the season!
